God Owns Time
Everything does have its time,
Either for to fall or to climb;
And a specific time given,
Unto us by God in Heaven.
There is a specific reason,
For each and every season;
A time to born a time to die,
A time to cheat a time to lie.
A time to plant a time to reap,
Time to wake up a time to sleep;
A time to kill a time to heal,
A time for comfort and to feel.
A time to laugh a time to cry,
A time for you to wonder why;
A time to mourn and to be glad,
A time to hug when you are sad.
A time to look a time to seek,
A time to be bold and be meek;
A time to destroy and to mend,
A time to see we near the end.
A time for silence and speak out,
A time to be certain and doubt;
A time for love a time for hate,
A time to go a time to wait.
A time to rebel and obey,
A time to ask God and pray;
A time for war a time for peace,
And a time when time will just cease.
