I am trying to find an old song sung predominately in appalacian churches.It has repeat lines and was later sung by some quartets, I believe.Here are the words that I remember.

Life's evening sun is sinking low.
A few more days and I must go
To meet the deeds that I have done
Where there will be no setting sun

Hi spearfish,

The hymn is "A Beautiful Life", by William Golden, 1918

1. Each day I'll do a golden deed
By helping those who are in need;
My life on earth is but a span,
And so I'll do the best I can.

Refrain:
Life's evening sun is sinking low,
A few more days and I must go
To meet the deeds that I have done,
Where there will be no setting sun.

2.
To be a child of God each day,
My light must shine along the way;
I'll sing His praise while ages roll
And strive to help some troubled soul.

Refrain:

3.
The only life that will endure,
Is one that's kind and good and pure;
And so for God I'll take my stand,
Each day I'll lend a helping hand.

Refrain:

4.
I'll help someone in time of need,
And journey on with rapid speed;
I'll help the sick and poor and weak,
And words of kindness to them speak.

Refrain:

5.
While going down life's weary road
I'll try to lift some trav'ler's load;
I'll try to turn the night to day,
Make flowers bloom along the way.

Refrain:

Hope this is it. God bless!

Steve
