There aren't many handbell arrangements of this venerable 19th hymn tune. The title refers to John 9:4 “As long as it is day, we must do the work of Him who sent me. Night is coming when no one can work.” Andrew Duncan's arrangement embraces this theme in a joyful, exuberant manner. Liberal use of stopped-sound techniques along with a brisk tempo enable the listener to visualize our working till Jesus comes. This is an uplifting piece full of hope and promise.
