"... and the fishes will laugh as they swim out of the path and the seagulls they'll be smiling ..." / "... Wouldn't take nothing for my journey now ..."

(the blog post title is from "When The Ship Comes In", lyrics by Bob Dylan, 1963)

"... A song will lift
As the mainsail shifts
And the boat drifts on to the shoreline
And the sun will respect
Every face on the deck
The hour that the ship comes in ..."

The rest of the set list for the above includes:  "Only A Pawn In Their Game" (lyrics by Bob Dylan) and "Keep Your Eyes On The Prize"

Here's a more recent cover of "Keep Your Eyes On The Prize":

"... Well, the only chains that we can stand
Are the chains of hand in hand
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
Got my hand on the freedom plow
Wouldn't take nothing for my journey now ..."

(lyrics from "Keep Your Eyes On The Prize"

"... May you always know the truth and see the light surrounding you / May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong..." 
(lyrics by Bob Dylan, from "Forever Young," written in 1973, when he was 32 years old)

Bob Dylan is 77 years old today.
