So It Goes

Today Christian traditions celebrate Palm Sunday. So you may wonder why this song is about time and based on Ecclesiastes 3. In short, it’s because Jesus experienced good times and bad times, just like the rest of us. What’s more, his personal ego didn’t like the bad ones – but he didn’t let that overpower him.

Matthew 26:39* reads: He went forward a little, fell on his face, and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass away from me; nevertheless, not what I desire, but what you desire.”

Please enjoy the beauty and joy of Palm Sunday, when crowds welcomed Jesus. As Holy Week unfolds, may your contemplations center around the Presence and Will of God in all things. No matter what we’re experiencing, we are never separate from God. He knows the purpose for our lives and is there through and in everything.

So It Goes – Lyrics

Instrument: Tempo – Seagull Excursion Folk Acoustic Guitar

Refrain 1:
For everything there is a season,
A time to tear, a time to sew.
We may not understand the reason.
Even so, the Father knows.
And so it goes.

1. There’s a time to birth and plant,
And a time to die and pluck.
There’s a season to break down,
And a time for building up.

Refrain 2:
For everything there is a season,
A time to tear, a time to sew.
We may not understand the reason.
Even so, the Father knows.
Things come and go, to and fro,
By ebb and flow, they change and grow,
So it goes.

2. There’s a time to dance and laugh,
And a time to mourn and weep.
There’s a season to keep still,
And a perfect time to speak.
Refrain 2:

3. There’s a time to gather stones,
And a time to cast away.
There’s a season to let go,
And a time we may embrace.
Refrain 1:
