Lord Of The Dance
by Sydney Carter

G     Em
1. I danced in the morning
   G    Em
When the world was begun,
C     D7
And I danced in the moon

And the stars and the sun,
       G      Em
And I came down from heaven
        G     Em
And I danced on the earth
     C    D7    CG
At Bethlehem I had my birth.

Refrain:
  G    Em       G    Em
Dance then wherever you may be,
G  Em           C        D7
I am the Lord of the Dance said He,
           G   C   G
And I'll lead you all
     Am
Wherever you may be,
          C  D7
And I'll lead you all
         C  G
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 high
And they left me there
On a Cross to die.

(refrain)

4. I danced on a Friday (slow down)
When the sky turned black
It's hard to dance
With the world on your back
They buried my body
And they thought I'd gone
But I am the dance
And I still go on. (Speed up)

(refrain)

5. They cut me down
And I leapt up high
I am the life
That'll never, never die
I'll live in you
If you'll live in me
I am the Lord
of the dance said He.

(refrain) 
 Sydney Carter
