“Who Antichrist do thus oppose,

And for truth's cause their lives lay down,
Will get the victory o'er their foes,
And gain life's everlasting crown,

“Here lies the body of Mr John Blackader, minister of the Gospel at Troqueer in Galloway, who died on the Bass, after five years imprisonment, anno dom 1685, and of his age sixty-three years.

“Blest John, for Jesus' sake in Patmos bound,

His prison Bethel, Patmos, Pisgah found ;
So the bless'd John, on yonder rock confined,
His body suffer'd, but no chains could bind
His heaven-aspiring soul ; while day by day,
As from Mount Pisgah's top, he did survey
The promised land, and view'd the crown by faith
Laid up for those who faithful are till death.

Grace formed him in the Christian Hero's mould,
Meek in his own concerns—in's Master's bold;
Passions to reason chained, Prudence did lead-
Zeal warm'd his breast, and reason cool'd his head.
Five years on the lone rock, yet sweet abode,
He Enoch-like enjoyed, and walk'd with God;
Till, by long living on this heavenly food,
His soul by love grew up too great, too good
To be confined to jail, or flesh or blood.
Death broke his fetters off, then swift he fled
From sin and sorrow, and by angels led,
Enter'd the mansions of eternal joy ;-
Blest soul, thy warfare's done, praise, love, enjoy.
His dust here rests till Jesus come again-
Even so, blest Jesus come,-come Lord. Amen!"
