Work, for the Night Is Coming



music Work, for the night is coming,
Work through the morning hours;
Work while the dew is sparkling,
Work 'mid springing flow'rs.
Work when the day grows brighter,
Work in the glowing sun;
Work, for the night is coming,
When man's work in done.

Work, for the night is coming,
Work through the sunny noon;
Fill brightest hours with labor-
Rest comes sure and soon.
Give ev'ry flying minute
Something to keep in store;
Work, for the night is coming,
When man works no more.

Work, for the night is coming,
Under the sunset skies:
While their bright tints are glowing,
Work, for daylight flies.
Work till the last beam fadeth,
Fadeth to shine no more;
Work, while the night is dark'ning,
When man's work is o'er.





dark'ning = darkening
ev'ry = every
flow'rs = flowers
'mid = amid
o'er =over







Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. Ephesians 5:19
