'; THE NIGHT COMETH.
We see the evening shadows
?.. Upon the dewy ground;
And the flowers are softly closing

Tbat by the way abound.
The clouds are growing darker,
Thend hide the rading light; .
The wind is sighing sadly,

Then cometh on the night.
Our hearts are growing weary; ...,

Our eyes are fain to close;
The limbs relax in slumber

!
: Oh, sweet will be repose.
· Yet, ere the evening vanish,

Oh, let us rouse again,
And work awhile in earnest-

It may not be in vain.
Our task is uncompleted;

Oh, faint not in the light. . .
But work a little longer
Till day is lost in night.
