Bob Dylan (Robert Allen Zimmerman, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, folk and rock musician, who has been an influential figure in popular music and culture for more than five decades.

"In My Time of Dying" (aka "Jesus Make Up My Dying Bed" or a variation thereof) is a traditional gospel music song that has been recorded by numerous musicians. The title line, closing each stanza of the song, refers to a deathbed and was inspired by a passage in the Bible from Psalms 41:3 "The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing, thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness".

Versions were recorded by country blues artists like Vera Reed and gospel groups like the Soul Stirrers. The song gained greater prominence in popular music when Bob Dylan included a version (along with several others dealing with the subject of death) on his 1962 eponymous debut album. The song, closest to Josh White's version, had a slightly different name on the Dylan album, "In My Time of Dyin'".
