And I came down from heaven and I danced on the
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
But they would not dance and they would not follow me;
I danced for the fishermen, for James and John;
They came to me and the dance went on.
I danced on the sabbath when I cured the lame,
The holy people said it was a shame;
whipped and they stripped and they hung me high;
And they left me there on a cross to die.
danced on a Friday and the sky turned black;

They buried my body and they thought I’d gone,
But I am the dance and I still go
They cut me down and I leapt up high,
I am the life that’ll never, never
I’ll live in you if you’ll live in me;
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.
