Lord of the Dance

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 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 the earth,
At Bethlehem I had my birth.

Words by Sydney Carter, used with permission. Sung to the tune of the old Shaker hymn, Simple Gifts, this song is a classic in Revels productions around the U.S. At the end of the song, the lights come up and audience members join the cast in a long, interweaving line of dance.
