Lord Of The Dance

Irish Song Lyrics - Lord Of The DanceAuthor: Shaker Song Traditional Melody
Copyright: Stainer & Bell/Hope Publishing (ASCAP)

I danced in the morning
when the world was begun
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" I'll Lead you all wherever you may be I will lead you all in the dance'" said He

I danced for the scribe
and the Pharisee
but they would not dance
they wouldn't follow me
I danced for the fisherman
for James and John
They came with me
and the dance went on REFRAIN

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
they left me there
on the cross to die REFRAIN

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

They cut me down I lept up high
I am the Light
that will never, never die
I'll live in you
if you live in Me
"I am the Lord of the Dance," said He.
