The Dancing Heart

E A Oh, the Holy Ghost will set your feet a-dancing B7 E The Holy Ghost will thrill you through and through A The Holy Ghost will set your feet a-dancing B7 E And set your heart a-dancing too E David danced before the Lord A He danced with all his might B7 His heart was filled with Holy joy E His spirit was so light Michal through the window looked A To criticise did start B7 She didn't know that David E B7 E Had got a dancing heart David danced before the Lord To magnify His name In God's almighty presence He felt no sense of shame The oil of gladness flowed that day It quickened every part He hadn't only dancing feet He had a dancing heart Out of Egypt long ago The Israelites were fed By a mighty miracle They all were kept and fed Through the Red Sea they were brought The waters stood apart And God have sister Miriam A dance down in her heart There was a celebration Upon the Red Sea shore Timbrels rand, desert sands Became a dancing floor The people sang and praised God there And put a dance of love and joy A-deep down in their hearts The prodigal was far away Wandering out in sin But he came back to father's house And father took him in He put a robe upon his son The merriment did start The prodigal got dancing shoes To match his dancing heart The father's house with music rang To welcome home the son Wine was flowing full and free All misery was gone The elder brother looking on Complained it wasn't fair He hadn't got a dancing heart Like all the other's there Now many saints are cold and bound By unbelief today They want the blessings of the Lord But worry what men say O, let the Lord have full control From dead traditions part And He will set you free within You'll have a dancing heart Now in the Bible we can read That in the latter days Men would leave their first love And turn to carnal ways But trueborn saints of Jesus For the Bridegroom set apart Are waiting for His coming With a joyful, dancing heart
