I will not say 'the day is done' - -
Though a light is gone from the sky,
I will not close my eyes to sleep,
Nor lay my head down to cry.
I will not say `the day is done',
But I will walk the bitter night,
I will not rest, weep or cry,
And I will not give up the fight.
But I will say smile and live,
Banish fear and remove the veil,
Lift up your head and stop the tear,
Tears are wept to no avail.
I will not say `the day is done'.
