Lord of the Dance
written by Sidney Carter
arranged and performed by Franklyn Schaefer


#1.

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 Earth;

at Bethlehem I had my birth.
 

CHORUS:

Dance, dance, 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!

 

#2.

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 to me and the Dance went on.
 

Chorus
 

#3.

I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame.

The holy people said it was a shame.

They whipped and they stripped me and they hung me high

and they left me there on a cross to die.
 

Chorus

#4.

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 Id gone..

but I am the Dance and I still go on.
 

Chorus
 

#5.

They cut me down but I leaped up high.

I am the Life that will never, ever die.

I'll live in you if you'll live in Me

I am the Lord of the Dance, said He.
 

Chorus
