English Hymn 76

STANZA 1
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.

STANZA 2
Work, for the night is coming,
Work through the sunny noon;
Fill brightest hours with labour,
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.

STANZA 3
Work, for the night is coming,
Under the sunset skies;
While their bright tints are glowing,
Work, for daylight flies.
Work till the last bean fadeth,
Fadeth to shine no more;
Work while the night is darkening,
When man’s work is o’er.
