    Verse 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.

    Verse 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.

    Verse 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 darkening,
    When man's work is o'er.
