Story Behind the Song
Based on the scripture, "Well done thou good and faithful servant" I like to sing this song to encourage the many faithful people with whom we've served the Lord in the various churches my husband has pastored.
Chorus: Well done, thou good & faithful servant,
Faithful in the little things.
Well done, thou good & faithful servant,
Enter the joy your Master brings.
Jesus wants to see if we will obey Him
So He gives us a job to do.
The first one is believing the Father sent Him
Jesus, our Savior, faithful and true.
Sometimes He asks us to roll our sleeves up,
Doing a job that we'd rather ignore.
He's watching our hearts to see if we're humble,
And if we are, He'll entrust us with more.
Faithful in loving, faithful in living,
Faithful in giving our money and time
Faithful in praying for the brethren
Reading the Word and abiding in the Vine.
Faithful in sharing the good news of Jesus
To all the lost ones He died to save;
Faithful in helping the hopeless, depressed ones--
Jesus will make us faithful and brave.
Some fine day when the books are opened
And the finger of God rests on your name.
Will it be said, "Here's a faithful servant
Forever and ever with me He will reign."
