We are celebrating the life of a good man
He walked a tough road
Like many of us he made some bad choices
But what a friend he had in Jesus

Arthur cooked good and was a good cook
He worked hard at walking with God
Obedience to Jesus was uppermost in his mind
A diligent man who loved Jesus and people

When we had problems we went to him
His integrity was important to him
We knew that and could talk with him about anything
Knowing that it would stay with him

Like Jesus Arthur was quick to give grace
He believed in being kind to others
A gentleman in every way
At night he was our community protector

A man of God we loved
A servant to Bethel Colony South
A friend who will be deeply missed
He is with our Father in heaven and one day soon we will see him again
