Lyrics: Lord of the Dance
by Sydney Carter

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 the earth
In Bethlehem I had my birth

Dance, dance where-ever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, where-ever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

I danced for the scribes and the Pharisees
They wouldn't dance, they wouldn't follow me
I danced for the fishermen, for James and John
They came with me, and the dance went on


I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame
The holy people said it was a shame
They stripped, they whipped me and  they hung me high
Left me there on the cross to die


I danced on the Friday when the world turned black
It's hard to dance with the devil on your back
They buried my body, they thought I'd gone
But I am the dance and the dance goes on


They cut me down and I leaped up high
I am the Life that will never, never die
I'll live in you if you live in me
I am the lord of the dance, said he
