172. If When You Give the Best of Your Service (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."

Refrain:
Oh, when I come to the end of my journey,
weary of life, and the battle is won;
carrying the staff and the 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 call his Father in heaven,
"not my will, but thine be done." [Refrain]

3 So 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; and say, "Well done." [Refrain]
