Christmas and Lord of the Dance

This Christmas I almost has no spare time at all, a lot of things need to done and ready for next January, since I’ll say my good bye to Yogyakarta. But obviously, I got my holiday as well.

Since a ton of work, I found a song that give a good mood while finishing everything on the line of duty. A song wrote by Sidney Carter in 1967.

A Hymn, Lord of the Dance, is perfectly good for this Christmas in Yogyakarta, while the season is rainy – the weather still hot summer.

I danced in the morning when the world was begun
I danced in the moon, the stars and the sun
I danced 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 would not follow me
So I danced for the fisherman, for James and John
They came with me and the dance went on

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

I danced on a Friday, when the sky turned black
Its hard to dance with the Devil on your back
Oh they buried my body, they thought I’d gone
But I and the dance still go on

They cut me down, but I lept on high
I am the light 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

This song is quite popular with The Dubliners, but I prefer the chorus that arranged by John Rutter. While, since only the song from The Dubliners available on YouTube, so here it is….

Merry Christmas to all of you.
