The forbidden dance


Forbidden Dance I danced when I first heard Your name,

danced because my life would never be the same.

I danced in the sun, I danced in the street,

I danced in the halls when the dancers like to meet

I danced the dance of joy, I danced with passion too,

There wasn’t a move I wouldn’t dance for You.

 

Then came the day when the dancers had to pay

The price for dancing and giving You away

The foul ones schemed, and the world heard them say.

“Down with the dancers, they’ll be our next prey”

 

We met in secret dance halls,

Underground, behind thick walls

We listened to soft music play

And still we’d dance the night away.

Nothing could stop the movement in our feet,

As we danced to the rhythm that God’s loving heart beat.

 

We danced until the day we dancers had to pay

When they tried to take the dancers all away.

They found where we freely danced for Your delight

They found where we hid ourselves to dance all through the night

 

One by one shots rang out, through the room so dim

Yet my heart screamed out,

“I’ll never stop dancing for Him,

I’ll dance in the moonlight,

I’ll dance all the night

I’ll dance in the sunshine,

I’ll dance in His sight.

 

Down another dancer fell,

Just who it was, I could not tell

Those who came to take our dance away

Had said with blood we had to pay.

The music never stopped,

As one by one we dropped.

Blood was on the floor, It struck me to the core

But on I danced yet more.

Before each ardent dancer dropped

They said they’d never ever stop

Dancing in the room so dim

Their hearts yet singing out to Him,

We’ll dance in the moonlight,

we’ll dance all the night

We’ll dance in the sunshine,

we’ll dance in His sight.

 

Though my partner was the next to go

Yet I felt my passion only grow

“Lord, I’ll dance and dance for You

It’s all I really want to do

No matter what the cost I know all is not lost”

 

Even if it seems I’m last on the floor

 I’ll dance and dance much more

 Like I’ve never danced before.

Till I feel my spirit soar.

Dancers never die Up to the sky they fly.

 

When the dancers all meet,

And the dancing King we greet,

In the halls up above,

There’ll be no end then to their great dance of love.

 

They danced the night away

They lived to see the day

When all tears were wiped away

And they let the music play

 

Those who tried to take their dance away,

Were now the ones who had to pay,

While the dancers danced all day

In the light of His new day.
