To Every Thing There is a Season

SOUTHWEST NEBRASKA -- The Byrds sang the classic tune in 1965, "To everything there is a season (turn, turn, turn)." Pete Seeger wrote the original in 1959, taking it from Eccelesiates 3:1.

The timeless truth it contains -- there is an appropriate time for everything -- seems especially apparent during the Fall season, when even nature knows the right time to "turn."

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.

(Kings James version)
