1. Work, for the night is coming, Work through the morning hours;
Work while the dew is sparkling, Work amid springing flowers.
Work while the day grows brighter under the glowing sun;
Work for the night is coming when man's work is done.
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.
3. 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 night is darkening, when man's work is o'er.
