Lord Of The Dance lyrics

by Steven Curtis Chapman

Lord Of The Dance (Abbey Road Version)
by Steven Curtis Chapman & Scotty Smith
Track #1 on the EP "The Abbey Road Sessions/The Walk"


On the bank of the Tennessee River
In a small Kentucky town
I drew my first breath
One cold November morning
And before my feet
Even touched the ground
With the doctors and the nurses
Gathered 'round
I started to dance, yeah
I started to dance, yeah

A little boy full of wide-eyed wonder
Footloose and fancy free
But it would happen,
As it does for every dancer
That I'd stumble on a truth I couldn't see
And find a longing deep inside of me
I said…

CHORUS:
I am the heart, I need the heartbeat
I am the eyes, I need the sight
And I see clearly I am just a body
I need the life
I move my feet,
I go through the motions
But who gives purpose to chance
I am the dancer
I need the Lord of the dance
I need the Lord of the dance

The world beneath us spins in circles
And this life makes us twist
And turn and sway
But we were made for more
Than rhythm with no reason
By the one who moves
With passion and with grace
As He dances over all that He has made

CHORUS 2:
I am the heart, He is the heartbeat
I am the eyes, He is the sight
And I see clearly, I am just a body
He is the life
I move my feet,
I go through the motions
But He gives purpose to chance
I am the dancer
He is the Lord of the dance

He is Lord of the dance, yeah
Lord of the dance, yeah
Yeah, yeah

BRIDGE:
And while the music
Of his love and mercy plays
I will fall down on my knees
And I will pray

CHORUS 2 REPRISE (x2)
I am the heart, You are the heartbeat
I am the eyes, You are the sight
And I see clearly, I am just a body
You are the life
I move my feet
I go through the motions
But You give purpose to chance
I am the dancer
You are the Lord of the dance

Yeah
You are the Lord of the dance
I am the dancer
You are the Lord of the dance
I am the dancer
You are the Lord of the dance
I am the dancer
You are the Lord of the dance
You are the Lord of the dance
