Well Done

Song and lyrics by Ted Kennedy

Refrain
O when this life is over and I take my final rest,
When I’ve made my final journey ‘round the sun,
May the angels receive me in the land of the blest,
And may I hear my Master say: “Well done.”

Verses
All that I’ve done, all the battles that I’ve won,
All that means nothing to me now.
But there’s one simple word, all I hope is to be heard,
When I finally meet my maker: “Well done.

No earthly treasure and no swiftly passing pleasure
Can bring any joy to me now.
No, my heart’s one desire, all my soul’s internal fire,
Is to hear those blessed words: “Well done.”

All my life’s story, all the vain and fleeting glory,
All that has faded for me now.
But that one blessed crown, worth more than all the world’s renown,
Shall be mine if I hear: “Well done.”
Yes that one blessed crown, worth more than all the world’s renown,
Shall be mine if I hear: “Well done.”
