I Danced in the Morning


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 the earth,
At Bethlehem I had my birth.
Refrain

Dance, then, wherever you may be;
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.
And I値l lead you all wherever you may be,
And I値l lead you all in the dance, said he.

I danced for the scribe and the Pharisee,
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.

Refrain

I danced on the sabbath when 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.

Refrain

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

Refrain

They cut me down and I leapt up high,
I am the life that値l never, never die;
I値l live in you if you値l live in me;
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.

Refrain
