Lord of the Dance
Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Michael Mitchell

I danced in the morning
When the world began
I danced in the moon
And the stars and the sun
I danced on the heavens
And I danced on the earth
At Bethlehem I had my birth

Dance, dance
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 scribes
And the Pharisees
But they wouldn't dance
And they wouldn't follow me
I danced for the fishermen
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 me, whipped me Hung me high
And left me there on a cross to die

I danced on a Friday
When the world 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

They cut me down
And I leapt up high
I am the life that will
Never, never die
I live in you and you live in me
For I am the Lord of the dance
Said he
