THE NIGHT IS COMING




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


Work, for the night is coming!
Work through the sunny noon;
fill brightest hours with labor,
rest comes sure and soon.
Give every 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 darkening,
when man's work is o'er.


Work, for the day is coming!
Children of light are we;
from Jesus' bright appearing
power of darkness flee.
Soon will our strife be ending,
soon all our toils below,
not to the dark we're tending,
but to the day we go.
