Turn, turn, turn again.
And was in his chambers

Bringing everything that’s near to me nearer to the fire.

I gazed down in the river’s mirror
And watched its winding strum.
The water smooth ran like a hymn
And like a harp did hum.
Lay down your weary tune, lay down,
Lay down the song you strum,
And rest yourself ‘neath the strength of strings
No voice can hope to hum.

To everything, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn

A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late
