Music: "Work Song," Lowell Mason

Work, for the Night is Coming

F Bb F Work, for the night is coming, C7 F Work through the morning hours; Bb F Work while the dew is sparkling, C7 F Work 'mid springing flowers; C7 Work when the day grows brighter, F G7 C Work in the glowing sun; F Bb F Work, for the night is coming, C7 F When man's work is done. 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. 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.
