Ezra Brainard

Though all the world despise my stand,
And not a friend will hold my hand,

Though all the world despise my stand,
And not a friend will hold my hand,
I know some day mine eyes shall see
The one who asked hard things of me,
And all the mockings I received,
Because of things that I believed,
Will seem as nothing when He says, “Well done.”

If from today until the grave,
I’m never used a soul to save,
Yet still some day mine eyes shall see
The one who asked hard things of me,
And all the sorrows and the tears,
That I have wept throughout the years
Will seem as nothing when He says, “Well done.”

Though I must leave my friends behind,
I’ll seek the Lord whom I shall find.
And then some day mine eyes shall see
The one who asked hard things of me,
And I won’t care about the fun
I could have had with everyone.
But just to listen when He says, “Well done.”

Though I must give my dreams away,
And let my Saviour lead the way,
I know some day mine eyes shall see
The one who asked hard things of me,
And then the big things will be small,
And I won’t miss my dreams at all,
They’ll seem like nothing when He says, “Well
done.”
