Tune: [When the Master comes in glory]
Published in 1 hymnal
1 When the Master comes in glory,
With His angels fair and bright,
When the world’s completed story
Is unrolled before His sight;
When the saved of every nation
Join to praise His grace divine,
Shall these words of commendation,
Fall upon your ears, and mine?
Well done, well done,
O shall we hear the welcome words, well done?
Shall we hear the Saviour saying,
When we stand before the throne,
Well done, my child, well done.
2 There is work to do for Jesus,
That should every pow’r employ;
May His blessed service please us,
More than any earthly joy.
There are souls that must not perish,
Wand’ring sheep that we may find;
Little lambs that we may cherish,
Broken hearts that we may bind. [Chorus]
3 O the good beyond all guessing
Of a loving deed or look!
O the wondrous pow’r of blessing
In a word from God’s own Book!
Let us spread the great salvation
Till the setting of the sun;
Then we’ll hear the commendation
From the Masters lips, “Well done.” [Chorus]
