Lowell

Song of the Spinners

Lowell Offering


The day is o’er
No longer we toil and spin
For ev’nings hush withdraws from the daily din
And we spin all day
and then in the time for rest
Sweet peace is found
A joyous and welcome guest
Tis now we sing
with gladsome hearts
The theme of the spinner’s song
That labor to leisure a zest imparts
Unknown to the idle throng
Pine of toil we all agree
or out of the Mills or in
Dependent on others we ne’er will be
So long as we’re able to spin
