Sunday Song : "Lord of the Dance"

Each Sunday during Lent, we post a song one of our parishioners submitted to our Lenten Meditation Book. Each song inspires reflection... gives joy... radiates love. We hope that you enjoy.



“Lord of the Dance”

a Shaker song


1. I danced in the morning when the world was young

I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun

I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth

At Bethlehem I had my birth.


Refrain

Dance, dance, wherever you may be

I am the lord of the dance, said he

And I lead you all, wherever you may be

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


2. I danced for the scribes and the Pharisees

They wouldn’t dance, they wouldn’t follow me

I danced for the fisherman James and John

They came with me so the dance went on.

Refrain


3. I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame

The holy people said it was a shame

They ripped, they stripped, they hung me high

Left me there on the cross to die.

Refrain


4. I danced on a Friday when the world turned black

It’s hard to dance with the devil on your back

They buried my body, they thought I was gone

But I am the dance, and the dance goes on.

Refrain


5. They cut me down and I leapt up high

I am the life that will never, never die

I’ll live in you if you’ll live in me

I am the Lord of the dance, said he.

Refrain
