Lesson 11 Epitaph
He Was Friend (Eulogy/ Epitaph)
Lesson 11
Epitaphs An epitaph is a commemorative inscription on a tomb or mortuary monument written in praise, or reflecting the life, of a deceased person.



He was a Friend
Like Jonathan to me;
A faithful friend,
Who stood like a tree.

A man of faith
Like Wigglesworth,
Full of strength,
Full of worth.


A man of integrity,
A man of his word,
A man of purity,
A man of the Word.


A man of Action
Motivated by love
Moved by compassion
Ruled from above.

He was a friend
Who spoke his mind
To friend or fiend
What was God’s mind.

He was a man exemplary
Who stood like a giant
Comes near with empathy
And very adamant.

He was a friend
Closer than a brother
Who fought to the end
In good and bad weather.

He was a friend
A man of God
Who did not pretend
When sharing the Word.

Now absent in the body
He is in heaven
With Jesus - his buddy
In blissful haven.


He leaves a legacy
Of Stirling quality
Challenging you and me
To be beacons of the Almighty.
My friend has gone
To be with Jesus – His Lord and Savior
He rests in His bosom – a safe haven.
But the question remains
To you and me:
Where would we be
Should we called today?

2Cor5:8We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. NIV
1Th:4:16: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
1Th:4:17: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Phil3:20 20But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,
Ps1:5-6 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
