For everything there is a season, and a time for everything under the sun.
 A time to work, and a time to play;
 A time to soldier on, and a time to call it a day;
A time to be serious, and a time to have fun.

For everything there is a season, and a time for everything under the stars.
 A time to be harsh, and a time to be kind;
 A time to be troublesome, and a time to put troubles behind;
A time for Venus, and a time for Jupiter and Mars.

For everything there is a season, and a time for everything under the sky.
 A time to stay, and a time to go;
 A time to say Yes, and a time to say No;
A time to laugh, and a time to cry;
A time to sing, and a time to say goodbye.
