O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!

Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
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.

Work, for the night is coming,
Work through the sunny noon;
Fill brightest hours with labor,
Rest comes sure and soon,
Give ev'ry 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, for the night is dark'ning,
When man's work is o'er.
