Good to Keep in Mind

When He Returns

The iron hand it ain’t no match for the iron rod
 The strongest wall will crumble and fall to a mighty God
 For all those who have eyes and all those who have ears
 It is only He who can reduce me to tears
 Don’t you cry and don’t you die and don’t you burn
 For like a thief in the night, He’ll replace wrong with right
 When He returns

 Truth is an arrow and the gate is narrow that it passes through
 He unleashed His power at an unknown hour that no one knew
 How long can I listen to the lies of prejudice?
 How long can I stay drunk on fear out in the wilderness?
 Can I cast it aside, all this loyalty and this pride?
 Will I ever learn that there’ll be no peace, that the war won’t cease
 Until He returns?

 Surrender your crown on this blood-stained ground, take off your mask
 He sees your deeds, He knows your needs even before you ask
 How long can you falsify and deny what is real?
 How long can you hate yourself for the weakness you conceal?
 Of every earthly plan that be known to man, He is unconcerned
 He’s got plans of His own to set up His throne

 When He returns

--Bob Dylan
