1 I have work enough to do,
Ere the sun goes down;
For myself and kindred too,
Ere the sun goes down;
Ev’ry idle whisper stilling,
With a purpose firm and willing,
All my daily task fulfilling,
Ere the sun goes down.

Refrain:
Ere the sun goes down,
Ere the sun goes down;
For the night is fast descending,
And my life will have an ending,
When the sun goes down.

2 I must speak the loving word,
Ere the sun goes down;
I must let my voice be heard,
Ere the sun goes down;
Ev’ry cry of pity heeding,
For the injured interceding,
To the light the lost ones leading,
Ere the sun goes down. [Refrain]

3 As I journey on my way,
Ere the sun goes down,
God’s commands I must obey,
Ere the sun goes down;
There are sins that need confessing,
There are wrongs that need redressing,
If I would obtain a blessing,
Ere the sun goes down. [Refrain]
