Work for the night is coming – it may well be your last 7


Work for the night is coming

Anne L Coghill (1836 – 1907)

 

 

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 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

 

Work, for the night is coming,

Under the sunset skies

While the bright tints are glowing,

Work, for daylight flies

Work till their last beam fadeth

Fadeth to shine no more

Work while the night is darkening,

When man’s work is o’er
