To everything there is a season and a time.
to every purpose under the heaven a time to
be born, and a time to die; A time to plant
and a time to pluck up that which is planted.

Master, speak and make me ready
When Thy Voice is truly heard
When obedience glad steady
Still to follow every word. Amen
