1. 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 is done.
  2. Work for the night is coming,
    Work thro’ 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.
  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 beam fadeth,
    Fadeth to shine no more;
    Work while the night is dark’ning,
    When man’s work is o’er.
