​Lord Of The Dance

This song is by White Owl and appears on the album Pepper (2006).

Dance in the circle and the flames leap on high
I dance in the fire and I never, never die
I dance on the waves of the bright summer sea
For I am the Lord of the waves' mystery

I sleep in the kernel and I laugh at the rain
I dance in the wind and through the waving grain
When you cut me down, I care nothing for the pain
In the spring, I'm the Lord of the Dance once again

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the Lord of the Dance, said He
I'll live in you if you'll live in Me
And I'll lead you all in the dance, said He

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 I danced on earth
At Bethlehem I had my birth

I danced in the scribe and the Pharisee
But they would not dance they wouldn't follow me
I danced for the fishermen, for James and 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
I'll live in you if you'll live in Me
And I'll lead you all in the dance, said He

I danced on the Sabbath & I cured the lame
The holy people said it was a shame
They whipped they stripped they hung me high
They left on the cross to die

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

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the Lord of the Dance, said He
I'll live in you if you'll live in Me
And I'll lead you all in the dance, said He
