Here lieth a Man, that     
Faith and Works did even
(Like fiery Chariots)     
mount him up to Heaven.
He did adorne this Church.     
When Words were weake,
And Men forget, the     
living Stones will speak;
He left us Land: This     
little Earth him keepes,
These black Words Mourners,     
and the Marble weepes.

A fair Monument belonging to this Stone, standing over it, with this Inscription.

Ere his Worth was fully known,
London lost him, once her own.
Let that Year ly buried here,
In which London two did gain,
Sheriffs good, and lost again,
City, Church, Wife, Children, weep;
Reason good, though he but sleep.
Ill can London not lament,
Spoil'd of one chief Ornament.
Pity, Death had him oregrown,
Ere his Worth was fully known.
