Turn! Turn! Turn!
1954 Pete Seeger
Original source
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
--The King James Bible, The book of Ecclesiastes or, The Preacher, 3:1-3:8

To everything turn turn turn turn
There is a season turn turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

To everything turn turn turn turn
There is a season turn turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

Time to weep time to laugh
Time to mourn time to dance
Time to gain time to lose
Time to embrace
And a time to refrain from embracing

To everything turn turn turn turn
There is a season turn turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

It's time to sow time to reap
Time for silence time to speak
Time to kill and a time to heal
Time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together

Hope to everything turn turn turn turn
There is a season turn turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

Time to be born and a time to die
Time to break down time to build up
A time to love and a time to hate
Time for war time for peace
I swear it's not too late

To everything turn turn turn turn
There is a season turn turn turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

To everything turn turn turn turn
There is a season turn turn turn turn
To everything turn turn turn turn
There is a season turn turn turn turn
