Verse reads:
Jesus is my confidence and my redeemer in life. This I know. Should I not therefore give myself to peace. This also makes me think in favor of death's long night.

Stone reads (in part):
Born in Macungie (Pennsylvania)
Note:
Instead of the usual "Starb or Gestorben" (Died), the term "Entschlief" (Went To Sleep) is used.
