Dylan: Father of Night

My interpretations of "Father of Night," from Bob Dylan's New Morning album.

Father of night
Father of day
Father Who taketh the darkness away
Father Who teacheth the bird...
rainbows up in the sky
loneliness and pain
Father of love
Father of rain


Father of day
Father of night
Father of black, white
mountain so high
Father Who shapeth the cloud
Father of time
Father of dreams
rivers and streams


Father of grain, wheat
Father of cold
Father of heat
Father of air
Father of trees
lives in our heart and our memories
Father of minutes, days
Father of Whom we most solemnly praise
