"When All Is Said And Done" as written by Martin Sean Brannigan, Keith Peter Thomas Francis Joh Duffy, Stephen Patrick David Gately, Michael Graham, Ronan Keating, Shane Eamon Mark Stephen Lynch and Ray Hedges....
When all is said and done
As the season slips away
When I've taken steps beyond my sight
Will I find my strength in greater light
Will my courage grow with every passing day
And will my faith be constant as the setting sun
When all is said and done
When all is said and done
And the years have turned to gold
Will my life become a legacy
Of the things that matter most to me
Will the fire of faith grow bright inside me

And will I want to be the person I've become
When all is said and done
When all is said and done
When my eyes can finally see
Will I glory in the sweet release
And will mercy fill my soul with peace
Will I kneel and wonder at the savior's feet
Will I hear him say, "well done"
When he sees who I've become
Will I live with him
When all is said and done

    General CommentWill I endure to the end and when the end of this life comes, will I have done enough to be able to reside with the God, the Father and his son, Jesus Christ.

    Song MeaningThe meaning of this song is pretty clear in the lyrics. As one approaches the golden years of life, will they be able to look back and see a life of enduring faith? Most poignantly, will they have become a better person through it? It's meant as a question to pose to yourself, will you want to be the person you've become, when all is said and done? When the final moment of your life comes, will you glory in the sweet release?

    As a side note, I would disagree with the first commenter, BobGV, in that I don't think the song is at all about 'doing enough' to be able to reside with God, but rather it's about what you've become, and that in turn will let you kneel at the Savior's feet and let Him say, 'Well done." Granted, what you do can have a great impact on what you become, but your motivations behind your actions can make a great difference.
