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 MOVE ON
A TIME TO SOW
A TIME TO REAP
A TIME TO DESPAIR
A TIME TO HEAL
A TIME TO LAUGH
A TIME TO WEEP

TO EVERYTHING
TURN TURN TURN
THERE IS A SEASON
TURN TURN TURN
AND A TIME TO EVERY PURPOSE UNDER HEAVEN

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

TO EVERYTHING
TURN TURN TURN
THERE IS A SEASON
TURN TURN TURN
AND A TIME TO EVERY PURPOSE UNDER HEAVEN

THERE ARE TIMES OF LOVE
AND TIMES OF HATE
TIMES OF WAR
AND TIMES OF PEACE
A TIME YOU MAY EMBRACE
A TIME TO REFRAIN FROM EMBRACING

A TIME OF DARKNESS
A TIME FOR LIGHT
A TIME TO SPEAK
AND A TIME TO BE QUIET
A TIME OF HOPE
AND A TIME TO LET GO
A TIME TO GRIEVE
AND MUCH TIME TO REJOICE

A TIME OF DOUBT
AND A TIME FOR PRAYER
A TIME OF REGRET
AND A TIME TO BE TOUGH
A TIME OF ENVY
AND A TIME TO RESPECT
A TIME TO COMPLAIN
AND A TIME FOR SATISFACTION

AND WHEN THE HARDEST OF THESE TIMES APPEAR
RISE UP SEEM REAL TRANSPIRE
THEN IT’S TIME TO TURN TURN TURN

TO EVERYTHING
TURN TURN TURN
THERE IS A SEASON
TURN TURN TURN
AND A TIME TO EVERY PURPOSE UNDER HEAVEN

A TIME TO GAIN
A TIME TO LOSE
A TIME TO REND
A TIME TO SEW

A TIME OF WAR
A TIME TO CREATE
A TIME OF PEACE
I SWEAR IT’S NOT TOO LATE!

TO EVERYTHING
TURN TURN TURN
THERE IS A SEASON
TURN TURN TURN
TO EVERYTHING
TURN TURN TURN
THERE IS A SEASON
TURN TURN TURN
