I danced in the morning

I danced in the morning when the world was begun
I danced with the moon and the stars and the sun
I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth
At bethlehem I had my birth

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 } (x2)

I danced for the scribe and the pharisee
But they wouldn’t dance
And they wouldn’t follow me
I danced for the fishermen, for James and John
And they came to me and the dance went on

I danced in the morning 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

I came down low and I leapt up high
I am the Light that will never, never die
I live in you and you live in me
For I am the Load of the Dance said he.
