Work While It Is Day

We must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; night is coming when no one can work.
John 9:4 

Give us grace, O Lord, to work while it is day, 
fulfilling diligently and patiently whatever duty thou appointest us; 
doing small things in the day of small things, 
and great labors if thou summon us to any; 
rising and working, sitting still and suffering, according to thy word.
Go with us, and we will go, but if thou go not with us, send us not; 

go before us, if thou put us forth; 
let us hear thy voice when we follow. 
Hear us, we beseech thee, for the glory of thy great Name. Amen.
Christina Rosetti (1830-1894)
