With a few very slight modifications, Bob Dylan’s song I Shall Be Released (1967) is an appropriate song for Good Friday.
They say everything can be replaced,
yet every distance is not near,
so I forgive every face
of every man who put me here.
I see my light come shining
from the west unto the east.
Any day now, any day now,
I shall be released.
They say every man needs protection
they say every man must fall.
I swear I see my reflection
someplace high above this wall.
Hanging next to me on this lonely hill
is a man who swears he’s not to blame.
All day long I hear him shout so loud,
crying out that he was framed.
