lyrics

Kai Kairos
(Ecclesiastes 3, 1-8)

Toìs pàsi ho chrònos
kaì kairòs
to pantì pràgmati hypò ton uranòn
Kai kairòs
Kai kairòs

Tou tekeìn, tou apothaneìn
tou phyteùsai, tou ektìlai to pefyteumènon.
Kai kairòs, kai kairòs
tou apokteìnai, tou iàsasthai,
tou kathelìn, tou oikodomeìn,
tou klaùsai, tou gelàsai,
tou kòpsasthai, tou orhèsasthai.
Kai kairòs
Kai kairòs

Tou baleìn lìthous, tou synagageìn lìthous,
tou zetèsai, tou apolèsai,
tou phylàxai, tou ekbaleìn,

Kai kairòs
Kai kairòs
Tou rèxai, tou pàpsai,
tou sigàn, tou laleìn,
tou philèsai, tou misèsai.
Kairòs polèmou, kairòs eirènes…

Kai kairòs, kai kairòs…

To every thing there is a season
and a time
to every purpose under the heaven.
And a time
And a time

To be born, to die;
to plant, to reap;
And a time, and a time
to kill, to heal,
to break down, to build up;
to weep, to laugh;
to mourn, to dance.
And a time
And a time

to cast away stones, to gather stones together;
to embrace, to refrain from embracing;
to get, to lose, to keep, to cast away.

And a time
And a time
to rend, to sew,
to keep silence, to speak;
to love, to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace…

And a time, and a time…
