Martin Carthy And Dave Swarbrick - 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 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
They would not dance, they wouldn't follow me.
So I danced for the fishermen, for James and John,
They came with me and the dance went on.

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 on a Sabbath when I cured the lame
The holy people, they said it was a shame
So they whipped, they stripped, they hung me high
They let me there on the cross to die.

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 on a Friday when the sky turned black -
It's hard to dance with the devil on your back.
Oh, they buried my body, they thought I'd gone,
But I am the dance and I still go on.

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.

They cut me down but I leap up high
I am the life that will never, never die;
But I'll live in you if you'll live in me -
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.

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.
