​Lord Of The Dance

This song is by Nadia Birkenstock and appears on the album Emerald Isles (2001).

I danced in the morning
When the world was begun,
I danced in the moon
And the stars and the sun,
I came down from heaven
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 scribe
And the pharisee,
But they would not dance
And the wouldn't follow me,
I danced for the fishermen,
For James and for John -
They came with me
And the dance went on.

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 on the Sabbath
And I cured the lame
The holy people
Said it was a shame.

They whipped and stripped
And they hung me high,
They left me there
On a cross to die

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 on a Friday
When the sky 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'll live in you
If you'll live in me -
I am the Lord
Of the dance, said he.

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
