For twenty years in Pleasant Grove,
A most propitious town,
Lived cordial neighbors side by side,
Misters Green and Brown.
On Sunday mornings, at First Church,
Mr. Green would sing
With church parishioners of like faith,
Hosannas to the King.
With steadfast dedication,
On Thursdays he’d attend
A deacon’s meeting at said church,
The budget to expend.
In Second Church, dear Mr. Brown,
At eleven of the clock,
Stood just inside on Sunday morn
To gladly greet the flock.
On Wednesday nights he’d occupy
His pew, third on the right.
Prayer requests were sent aloft
As saints would fight the fight.
Mr. Green and Mr. Brown,
On earth, lived side by side.
When roll was called up yonder
And Christ came for his bride,
Then Mr. Green and Mr. Brown
Respired celestial air.
Astonishment showed on each face
To find the other there.
For twenty years each kept the faith,
Never having shared
The hope within to those without
Lest they be unprepared.
