When Day Is Done And Twilight Shadows


When day is done and twilight shadows
Have flung their mantle o’er the sky;
O often think of life’s sweet evening hour
That I shall come to by and by.

Refrain:
When day is done and life is ended,
And I the vict’ry shall have won,
Then I shall know the hallowed joys of heav’n,
When day is done, when day is done.

When day is done and friends have parted,
When weary toilers find repose;
My heart with glad anticipation,
Turns to the hour when life shall close. [Refrain]

When day is done and labors ended,
Have bro’t the night of peaceful rest,
I know that I shall find a welcome
Within the homeland of the blest. [Refrain]
