THERE'S A TIME FOR EVERYTHING (Ecclesiastes 3)

There's a time for everything you can imagine,
And a season for every activity under heaven.

            There's a time for everything:  to be born, and a time to die;
            A time for everything--even time to stop and ask why.
            There's a time for everything:  to uproot, and a time to plant;
            A time for everything--even time to admit that you can't.

God made everything beautiful in its own time,
From the cloud with its silver lining to the slug in its slime.
And he has set eternity in the hearts of men,
Yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

            There's a time for everything:  to kill, and a time to heal;
            A time for everything--even time to say how you feel.
            There's a time for everything:  to tear down, and a time to build;
            A time for everything--even times when your dreams are fulfilled.

I looked in the place of judgment--how could wickedness be there?
And I saw in the place of justice, no righteousness either.
I thought, "God will bring to judgment both the righteous and sinner,
For there's a time for everything--both the loser and winner."

            There's a time for everything:  to weep, and a time to laugh;
            A time for everything--even time to kill the fatted calf.
            There's a time for everything:  to mourn, and a time to dance;
            A time for everything--even time for a second chance.

I know there is nothing that is better for man
Than to be happy, and do good whenever they can.
Let people enjoy their work, and their joy and their laughter;
For who can bring them to see what will happen after?

            There's a time for everything:  to scatter, and to gather stone;
            A time for everything--even time to be all alone.
            There's a time for everything:  to embrace, and a time to refrain;
            A time for everything--even time for the wind and the rain.

            There's a time for everything:  to love, and a time to hate;
            A time for everything--even time to sit and meditate.
            There's a time for everything:  for war, and a time for peace;
            A time for everything--even time for the Spirit's release.
