|Bro. Russ, a man you need to know!
He was born on an Indiana farm, many years ago.
A typical kind of man, like any other Joe.
He tells you of sin and trouble, and all is so!
Unsuccessful, in almost every way;
His farm, work and all. He never enjoyed a day.
His foolish things in life were only just a toy.
He married young and raised a boy.
Until he came to know the Lord,
which happened one fine day!
He stands right up to 'Praise the Lord'.
For, he was hell-bent, for sure, that way!
He is older and wiser now,
than most men that I know.
You pass his house and hear him, and how!
He is reaping what he had to sow!
"I will see you at the eastern gate,"
he says. So everyone here knows.
Bro. Russ is preparing for the date
When off to heaven he goes!
So friend, take heed and warning now,
before it is too late ...
To meet Jesus and Bro. Russ
in heaven, at the eastern gate!
