The Martyrs' Tomb

The Martyr's Tomb (or Martyr's Monument) is in the north-east corner of Greyfriars Churchyard.  It was first erected in 1706 and was renewed in 1771.

INSCRIPTION

Halt passenger, take heed, what do you see -

This tomb doth show for what some men did die;

Here lies interr'd the dust of those who stood

'Gainst perjury, resisting unto blood;

Adhering to the covenants and laws

Establishing the same;  which was the cause

Their lives were sacrific'd unto the lust

Of Prelatists abjur'd;  through here their dust

Lies mixt with murderers and the other crew

Whom justice justly did to death pursue

But as for them no cause was to be found

Worthy of death;   but only they were found

Constant and steadfast, zealous, witnessing

For the prerogatives of Christ their King;

Which truths were sealed by famous Guthrie's head

And all along to Mr Renwick's blood:

They did endure the wrath of enemies:

Reproaches, torments, deaths, and injuries

But yet they're those from whom such trouble came,

And now triumph in glory with the Lamb.
