I am the dance...
So are you.

I love this hymn; the strength, the defiance, the Bible story in miniature. If you've studied my literature, this should really resonate. It's a sentiment simply for the taking! It has nothing to do with the supernatural. When are you going to choose it?? When ?? !!

LORD OF THE DANCE


I danced in the morning when the world was begun,
And I danced in the moon and the Stars and the Sun,
And I came down from heaven and I danced on earth:
At Bethlehem I had my birth.

     Dance then, wherever you may be,
     I am the Lord of the dance, said he,
     And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be,

     And I'll lead you all in the dance, said he.

 

I danced for the scribe and the Pharisee,
But they would not dance and they wouldn't follow me;
I danced for fishermen, for James and John;
They came with me and the dance went on:

     Dance then, wherever you may be,

     I am the Lord of the dance, said he,

     And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be,

     And I'll lead you all in the dance, said he.

I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame:
The holy people said it was a shame.
They whipped and they stripped and they hung me high,
And they left me there on a cross to die:

     Dance then, wherever you may be,

     I am the Lord of the dance, said he,
     And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be,
     And I'll lead you all in the dance, said he.

I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black;
It's hard to dance with the devil on your back.
They buried my body and they thought I'd gone;
But
I am the dance, and I still go on:

     Dance then, wherever you may be,
     I am the Lord of the dance, said he,
     And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be,

     And I'll lead you all in the dance, said he.

They cut me down and I leapt up high;
I am the life that'll never, never die.
I'll live in you if you'll live in me:
I am the Lord of the dance, said he.

     Dance then, wherever you may be,
     I am the Lord of the dance, said he,
     And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be,

     And I'll lead you all in the dance, said he.
