Lord Of The Dance - with Lyrics & Audio

"Lord of the Dance" is a hymn composed by Sydney Carter in 1963. The song draws inspiration from the concept of Jesus as the embodiment of the divine dance and the celebration of life.

Lord Of The Dance Lyrics

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
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
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
