I Have Done My Share

Could an evening star say to the moon,
"I'm tired of shining so bright,
I'd rather sail in darkness and gloom.
Let another shine for my light."


Could a man say to God above,
"I've come to the end of the road.
I have given all my love.
Let someone else carry my load."


Could a river say to the shore,
"I'm tired of running to the sea,
I don't want to run anymore.
Let another run for me."


Could a man say to God above,
"I've come to the end of the road.
I have given all my love.
Let someone else carry my load."


Could a tree say to a bird,
"I'm tired of being your nest,
Go where you cannot be heard.
I need a little more rest."


As long as stars shine and rivers run,
And trees give birds a nest,
Man's work is not done,
Nor can he cease doing his best!
