Lord Of The Dance
I [G] danced in the morning when the world was begun
And I [D7] danced in the Moon & the Stars & the Sun
And I [G] came down from Heaven & I danced on Earth
At [D7] Bethlehem I [G] had my birth
[G] Dance then, wherever you may be
I am the Lord of the [D7] Dance, said He!
And I'll [G] lead you all, wherever you may be
And I'll [D7] lead you all in the [G] Dance, said He!
I [G] danced for the scribe & the pharisee
But [D7] they would not dance & they wouldn't follow me
I [G] danced for fishermen, for James & John
They [D7] came with me & the [G] Dance went on
I [G] danced on the Sabbath & I cured the lame
The [D7] holy people said it was a shame!
They [G] whipped & they stripped & they hung me high
And they [D7] left me there on a [G] cross to die!
I [G] danced on a Friday when the sky turned black
It's [D7] hard to dance with the devil on your back
They [G] buried my body & they thought I'd gone
But [D7] I am the Dance & I [G] still go on!
They [G] cut me down and I leapt up high
I [D7] am the Life that'll never, never die!
I'll [G] live in you if you'll live in Me -
[D7] I am the Lord of the [G] Dance, said He!
