Of time 'twas told that seasons be;
A time for all activity.

A season to plant, and one to uproot;
A season to bring up, and one to step by foot.

A season to build up, a season to bring down;
A season to take from the king his crown.

A season for lachrymose, a season for laughter
And happiness ever after.

A season to embrace, and one to refrain...
A season for joy, a season for pain.

For sewing together, for ripping apart;
A season to make as one two hearts.

A season for ev'ry activity:
Seasons have been, seasons will be.
