Display contents of a custom field type URL as text


I have a custom field type URL that holds a URL. I want to place this URL in the body of an HTML email but I want to control the text that is displayed. I tried wrapping it in href tag but this doesn't work (because it is already an href I believe). Is it possible to output just the text of the custom URL field?

This did NOT work:

<a href="$!jetiFieldRenderer.renderCustomField($issue, 'customfield_10016')">Click here</a>
