No. 83

Another with no title/author/composer given. I believe the title to be the same as the first line, “Work, for the Night is Coming”.

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 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.

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.
