(Ecc. 9:10-12)

Play This Song Now

Everywhere I go, I see the people
Living life without a care.
They don’t know the future isn’t certain;
Time will pass them unaware.

“Time, time, time is on my side;
I’m just coasting with the tide.”
Time, time, time – All the people say,
“Time, time, time is on my side.”

Anything your hands can find to do,
Do it with all of your might.
For there is no activity or wisdom
When you reach eternal night.
Don’t be thinking that …


Understand: the swift do not win races,
Nor do warriors win the war.
Nor does favor go to those with talent,
For time and chance take over all.
Don’t be thinking that …


[Just like fish caught up in nets of danger
And a bird trapped in a snare,
So the sons of men are snared by evil
And it traps them unaware.
All they’re thinking is …]
