Blowin’ in the Wind

“Blowin’ in the Wind” is a song written by Bob Dylan in 1962. It was released as a single and included on his album The Freewheelin’Bob Dylan in 1963.

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?

Yes, and how many times must the cannonballs fly
Before they’re forever banned?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

Yes, and how many years must a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea?
And how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?

Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

Yes, and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
And how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?

Yes, and how many deaths will it take ’til he knows
That too many people have died?

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

Bob didn’t know the answer was not blowing in the wind but found between the pages of Scripture.

Isaiah 45:22

“Turn to me and be saved,
all the ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.

Romans 14:7

For none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself.

The next time you’re taking a walk and feel a breeze on your face, don’t think it has an answer. The answers are found in the Old Book.

Give it some thought.
