    Hi golukhanna,


    at night

    to work at night
    late at night

    The collocation by night is usually used with nouns (London by night)

    Regards,

    V.

    In the night = during the night.

    The collocation "at night" is usually used with verbs (she works at night) and contrasts with "during the day".

    In the night
    Grey heavy clouds muffled the valleys,
    And the peaks looked toward God alone.
    "O Master that movest the wind with a finger,
    Humble, idle, futile peaks are we.
    Grant that we may run swiftly across the world
    To huddle in worship at Thy feet."

    In the morning
    A noise of men at work came the clear blue miles,
    And the little black cities were apparent.
    "O Master that knowest the meaning of raindrops,
    Humble, idle, futile peaks are we.
    Give voice to us, we pray, O Lord,
    That we may sing Thy goodness to the sun."

    In the evening
    The far valleys were sprinkled with tiny lights.
    "O Master,
    Thou that knowest the value of kings and birds,
    Thou hast made us humble, idle futile peaks.
    Thou only needest eternal patience;
    We bow to Thy wisdom, O Lord --
    Humble, idle, futile peaks."

    In the night
    Grey heavy clouds muffled the valleys,
    And the peaks looked toward God alone.
