“May the work I've done speak for me, may the work I’ve done speak for me. When I'm resting in my grave, and there’s nothing more to be said; may the work I've done speak for me. The work I've done, it seems so small, sometimes it seems like nothing at all; but when I stand before my God, I want to hear him say well done, May the Work I’ve Done Speak for Me.”
