Probably not on your list of traditional Christmas songs, but apparently Pandora thinks it should be on mine.
This song always reminds me of the importance of dance and song when it comes to really getting something into the hearts of people.
It’s such a great version of the story of Christianity.
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,
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
And the end:
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.
As I get older I am more and more grateful for that very first Christmas gift – that God would send His Son to save me (I know me pretty well and I can’t believe He thought it was worth it).
I hope you can find a few minutes over Christmas to ponder this wonderful gift that was given for you.
One of my favorite hymns! Needed this today Jake! Ty Merry Christmas
Jake – I’m crying as I listen. See, Silas loved all Irish music! After he passed at 16, I finally got an iPhone. Unbeknownst to me, he had used my information to set up his iTunes account.
Yep! I got ALL of Silas’s music!
This was a favorite though.
Tell your Mom & Dad Merry Christmas – and a special hug to Silas’s favorite babysitter, Kim nee’ Barber!!
I’ll tell them you said Merry Christmas and pass the hug (virtually) on to Kim.
