On the last track of his last Christian-themed album, Dylan places what is widely considered one of his greatest songs.  “Every Grain of Sand” is a reflection on Dylan’s experience of God’s grace and presence over his life.  When we have the eyes of faith, we can see God’s hand in the seemingly mundane things of life, and recognize the truth that, as Jesus tells us, “every hair is numbered” and that God’s providential hand is with us at every moment.
