On Seasons

Song by Peter Seger with words adapted from Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8. Written sometime prior to 1964 and made popular by the Byrds on their 1965 album.

To everything

Turn, turn, turn

There is a season

Turn, turn, turn

And a time to every purpose Under Heaven

A time to be born, a time to die

A time to plant, a time to reap

A time to kill, a time to heal

A time to laugh, a time to weep

A time to build up, a time to break down

A time to dance, a time to mourn

A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

A time of war, a time of peace

A time to love, a time to hate

A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

A time to gain, a time to lose

A time to rend, a time to sow

A time for love, a time for hate

A time for peace, I swear it's not too late.
