I In Haste Was Called Away

There’s a peninsula at the top end of the Northern Beaches in Sydney, with a beach called Palm Beach. The tip of the peninsula has a hill, on which sits a now-disused lighthouse. Having climbed up to it, I came across the grave of the original lighthouse keeper. The inscription on his gravestone read:

All ye that come to my grave to see
Prepare in time to follow me.
Repent at once without delay
For I in haste was called away.

If I die a sudden death, put that on mine :-)
