Bob Dylan “Slow Train Coming”

When He returns

Truth is an arrow and the gate is narrow—-let it pass us through!

The woman said Dana has “gone dark”. Perhaps. The Truth be told is now very dark.

“When He Returns” lyrics

“The iron hand it ain’t no match for the iron rod (Golden Scepter)
The strongest wall will crumble and fall to 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
Like a thief in the night, he’ll replace wrong with right
When he returns
Truth is an arrow and the gate is narrow let it pass us through
He’ll unleash his power at an unknown hour that no one knows

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 (to the beast) 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 (false pride) 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 (fear) you conceal

Of every earthly plan that is known to man, he is unconcerned
He’s got plans of his own to set up His throne
When he returns”
