Knockin on Heavens door

Back when I was young so many years ago I believed
That I stood by myself nothing could knock me down
Now that I am so much older you know I have found
That although I may stand
Oh how much taller I am
Standing on the Word

I live under sun but I will die unto The Son
So I can live and die and live again

Knockin on Heavens door
Could I ever ask for more
All my life in a brittle bottle
That floats on the tide
Knockin on Heavens door
Floating to a distant shore
All that I think I can be
I’m beginning to see

Back when I fell down when I sank so low I believe
That I was lifted up, up when I found the key
Now that I am so much wiser you know I have found
That although It may storm
It’s nice when the bottle lands
On sacred ground

I live under sun but I will die unto the Son
So I can live and die and live again

Knockin on Heavens door
Who could ever want much more
All that I have ever tried to be
Locked up deep inside
Knockin on Heavens door
