"Prepare for Death"

An inscription from a gravestone in Jeffersontown Cemetery:

Weep not for me, oh kindred dear
I am not dead but sleeping here
My grave is silent as you see
Prepare for Death and follow me...

There is another version of this in a cemetery not far from my home.
"As you are now, so once was I
As I am now, so soon you will be.
Prepare for death, and follow me."
