466. He Understands, He'll Say "Well Done"

1 If when you give the best of your service,
Telling the world that the Savior is come;
Be not dismayed when men don't believe you;
He understands; He'll say, "Well done."

Oh, when I come to the end of my journey,
Weary of life and the battle is won;
Carr'ing the staff and cross of redemption,
He'll understand, and say, "Well done."

2 Misunderstood, the Savior of sinners,
Hung on the cross; He was God's only Son;
Oh! hear Him calling His Father in Heav'n,
"Not my will, but Thine be done." [Refrain]

3 If when this life of labor is ended,
And the reward of the race you have run;
Oh! the sweet rest prepared for faithful,
Will be His blest and final "Well done." [Refrain]

4 But if you try and fail in your trying,
Hands sore and scarred from the work you've begun;
Take up your cross, run quickly to meet Him;
He'll understand, He'll say, "Well done." [Refrain]
