THE TURNING OF THE YEAR
(Time Again for Music)
Words & music by Steve Suffet © 2005

Start on chorus:
There'll be time again for laughter,
There'll be time again for song,
There'll be time again for shouting out,
With voices proud and strong,
There'll be time again for loving,
The time is drawing near,
There'll be time again for music,
With the turning of the year.

Was a time of sacred blessing,
Was a time of evil curse,
A time of contradiction,
Was the best of times and worst,
A time of brilliant vision,
And a time of darkest fear,
There'll be time again for music,
With the turning of the year.

[repeat chorus]

I've heard the holy trumpet,
And I've heard the sacred harp,
I've heard the Angel Gabriel,
Triumphant by the Ark,
When I listen to your singing,
It's God's voice that I hear,
There'll be time again for music,
With the turning of the year.

[repeat chorus twice]
