And please sing along with the Hymn: Lord of the Dance:
1. I danced in the morning when the world was begun,
and I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun,
and I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth:
at Bethlehem I had my birth.
Refrain: 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.
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 with me and the dance went on: Refrain
3. 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 on high,
and they left me there on a cross to die: Refrain
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 I'd gone;
but I am the dance, and I still go on: Refrain
5. They cut me down, but I leap up high;
I am the life that will never, never die;
ll live in you if you’ll live in me;
I am the Lord of the dance, said he. Refrain
