God’s man
Proclaiming the Word
Jesus was His goal
He lived as the Father told

Faithful parent
Loving husband
Possessed by Jesus’ love
Struggling to get it right

Eddie’s life was hard
Long days of travel
Short nights to preach
Every day a joy

His attitude was sweet
His heart complete
Doing what Christ loved
He lived a life of faith

Strong and true
Able to do
Words from God his realm
Heaven always his view

One day we will see
Eddie on his knees
Serving still his Lord
God’s man is home with Him
