Sql custom sort apply on varchar column

Recently I got an simple question called need to short a column which is varchar values but not in alphabetical order.

Scenario is :
A customer table with Id, name, address, rank.
Rank column contains values ‘very good’ , ‘very bad’ , ‘good’ , and ‘bad’.

We need to sort rank column in such manner that it display order as
Very good
Good
Bad
Very bad.

First solution is tedious and not good but result perspective.
