lyrics

Wind in its eternal course
Round and round and round it goes
Racing to the north and south
As streams are running to the sea
Each will meet it faithfully
But the oceans are never full

Round and round each of us
Round in this eternal course
That we may never complete
Round and round each of us
Going to the north and south
But never tasting the end

The sun will both rise and set
The leaves both grow and fall
They spring back to life after death
All things are wearisome
All things are wearisome

What has been will be again
There is nothing new under the sun
But I can't have enough
Surely my eyes won't see enough
Nor shall my ears be satisfied
What has been will be again
Labours born under the sun
Toiling 'til the work is done
But tell me, can you see the point?
There is no man who truthfully cries:
"Look around, the earth is new,
Hear these brand new words!"

The sun will both rise and set
The leaves both grow and fall
They spring back to life after death
All things are wearisome
All things are wearisome
What has been will be again

It was here, it was here before our time
It was all here long ago

The sun with both rise and set (it was here before our time)
The leaves both grow and fall (it was all here long ago)
They spring back to life after death (it was here before our time)
When all things are wearisome, all things are brilliant
When what has been will be again...

Behold
I am making all things new
