A Time for Everything

Turn Turn Turn by The Byrds

My friends keep telling me that there is always a time fore everything. I believe they are right.

I have always loved this song which was made popular by Pete Seeger but I especially love this version by The Byrds. Some of the lyrics were directly taken from the book of Ecclesiastes in The Bible.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

There is a time fore everything.

Patience is a virtue...
