(A song by Sydney Carter)


I danced in the morning when the world was begun

And 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 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 the 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 the 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 leap up high

I am the life that'll never, never die

I'll live in you, if you 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
