The Night Cometh

Written by: Annie Louisa Walker | Biography
 Work! for the night is coming;
Work! through the morning hours;
Work! while the dew is sparkling;
Work! 'mid the springing flowers;
Work! while the day grows brighter,
Under the glowing sun;
Work! for the night is coming,--
Night, when man's work is done.
Work! for the night is coming; Work! through the sunny noon; Fill the bright hours with labour, Rest cometh sure and soon.
Give to each flying minute Something to keep in store; Work! for the night is coming,-- Night, when man works no more.
Work! for the night is coming; Under the sunset skies, While their bright tints are glowing, Work! for the daylight flies; Work! till the last beam fadeth, Fadeth to shine no more; Work! while the night is darkening,-- Night, when man's work is o'er.
