Hymn 819. “For the Life that You Have Given”

Scripture    Isaiah 58:9b-14, Luke 13:10-17.  Jeff Diehl. 

Hymn   “I Danced in the Morning (Lord of the Dance) “  (Sydney Carter, tune Simple Gifts )  

I danced in the morning when the world was begun

I danced in the Moon & the Stars & the Sun

I came down from Heaven & I danced on Earth

At Bethlehem I had my birth:

Refrain:  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 & the pharisee

But they would not dance & they wouldn’t follow me

I danced for fishermen, for James & John

They came with me & the Dance went on:


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

And they left me there on a cross to die!


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 & they thought I’d gone

But I am the Dance & I still go on!


They cut me down and I leapt up high

I am the Life that’ll never, never die!

I’ll live in you if you’ll live in Me –

I am the Lord of the Dance, said He!
