Finish thy work, the time is short - Finish thy work
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Finish thy work.

1. Finish thy work, the time is short,
  the sun is in the west;
the night is coming down, till then
  think not of rest. (PDF - Midi)

2. Yes, finish all thy work, then rest;
  till then, till then, rest never;
the rest prepared for thee by God
  is rest for ever.

3. Finish thy work, then wipe thy brow,
  ungird thee from thy toil;
take breath, and from each weary limb
  shake off the soil.

4. Finish thy work, then sit thee down
  on some celestial hill,
and of its strength-reviving air
  take thou thy fill.

5. Finish thy work, then go in peace,
  life's battle fought and won;
hear from the throne the Master's voice,
  "Well done, well done."

6. Finish thy work, then take thy harp,
  give praise to God above;
sing a new song of thankful joy
  and endless love.

7. Give thanks to him who held thee up
  in all thy paths below,
who made thee faithful to the death,
  and crowns thee now.

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope III, 1878, 4-5.
