There is an appointed time for everything,
and a time for every affair under the heavens.

A time to give birth, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant.

A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to tear down, and a time to build.

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

A time to scatter stones, and a time to gather them;
a time to embrace, and a time to be far from embraces.

A time to seek, 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 be silent, and a time to speak.

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

ECCLESIASTES Chapter 3 v1-8

The fourteen pairs of opposites describe various human activities. The poem affirms that God has determined the appropriate moment or “time” for each. Human beings cannot know that moment; further, the wider course of events and purposes fixed by God are beyond them as well.

Live Like You’re Dying lyrics

One of these days you’ll be
Under the covers you’ll be
Under the table and you’ll realize
All of your days are numbered;
All of them one to one hundred.
All of them millions.
All of them trillions.
So what are you gonna do with them all?
You can not trade them in for mall.
No no

Take every moment; you know that you own them.
It’s all you can do, use what’s been given to you.

Give me a reason
To fight the feeling
That there’s nothing here for me.
Cause none of it’s easy,
I know it wasn’t meant to be.
I know it’s all up to me
I know it’s all up to me
So what am I gonna do with my time?
Oh

I’ll take every moment, I know that I own them.
It’s all up to you to do whatever you choose.

Live like you’re dying and never stop trying.
It’s all you can do, use what’s been given to you.

All of the moments you didn’t notice;
Gone in the blink of an eye.
All of the feelings you couldn?t feel
No matter how you try.
Oh oh

Take every moment; you know that you own them.
It’s all you can do, use what’s been given to you.

Live like you’re dying and never stop trying.
It’s all you can do, use what’s been given to you.

Live like you’re dying and never stop trying.
It’s all you can do, use what’s been given to you.
