Lyrics
Each day I'll do (each day I'll do)
A golden deed (a golden deed)
By helping those (by helping those)
Who are in need (who are in need)
My life on earth (my life on earth)
Is but a span (is but a span)
And so I'll do (and so I'll do the best I can)

[CHORUS:]
Life's evening sun (life's evening sun)
Is sinking low (is sinking low)
A few more days (a few more days)
And I must go (and I must go)
Too meet the deed (to meet the deed)
That I have done (that I have done)
Where there will be (where there will be no setting sun)
While traveling down (while traveling down)
Life's weary road (life's weary road)
I'll try to lessen (I'll try to lessen)
Some travelers load (some travelers load)
I'll try to turn (I'll try to turn)
The nights to day (the night to day)
Make flowers bloom (make flower's bloom, along the way)

[REPEAT CHORUS]
