ecclesiastes 3: when?

When is the time for war,
o God of peace?
When is the time to laugh,
Man of Sorrows?
When is the time to die,
immortal One?
When is the time to speak,
o silent One?
When is the time for hatred,
rejected and reviled?
When is the time to lose,
o seeker of souls?
When is the time to break down,
to build up, to throw stones or to gather,
o rock of ages?
When you laid the foundations of the earth,
did they dance?
Did we miss it?
