Refrain: 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. 2 I danced for the scribe and the Pharisee, but they would not dance and they would not follow me. I danced for the fishermen, for James and John -- they came with me and the Dance went on. [Refrain] 3 I danced on the Sabbath when I cured the lame, the holy people said it was a shame. They whipped and they stripped and they hung me high, and they left me there on a Cross to die. [Refrain] 4 I danced on a Friday and the sky turned black -- it’s hard to dance with the devil on your back. They buried my body and they thought I’d gone -- but I am the Dance and I still go on. [Refrain] 5 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.

What a Friend We Have in Jesus

Author: Joseph M. Scriven, 1819-1886 Meter: D Appears in 1,688 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 11:19 Lyrics: 1 What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer! 2 Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged; take it to the Lord in prayer! Can we find a friend so faithful who will all our sorrows share? Jesus knows our every weakness; take it to the Lord in prayer! 3 Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care? Precious Savior, still our refuge-- take it to the Lord in prayer! Do your friends despise, forsake you? Take it to the Lord in prayer! In his arms he'll take and shield you; you wilt find a solace there. Used With Tune: CONVERSE

One There Is, above All Others

Author: John Newton Meter: Appears in 684 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 11:19 Lyrics: 1 One there is, above all others, well deserves the name of Friend; his is love beyond a brother's, costly, free, and knows no end. They who once his kindness prove find it everlasting love. 2 Which of all our friends, to save us, could or would have shed his blood? But our Jesus died to have us reconciled in him to God. This was boundless love indeed; Jesus is a Friend in need. 3 When he lived on earth abased, "Friend of sinners" was his name; Now above all glory raised, he rejoices in the same; still he calls them brethren, friends, and to all their wants attends. 4 Could we bear from one another what he daily bears from us? Yet this glorious Friend and Brother loves us though we treat him thus: though for good we render ill, he accounts us brethren still. 5 O for grace our hearts to soften! Teach us, Lord, at length to love, we, alas! forget too often what a Friend we have above: but when home our souls are brought, we will love you as we ought.

Author: Horatius Bonar Meter: D Appears in 1,224 hymnals Scripture: Matthew 11 Lyrics: 1 I heard the voice of Jesus say, "Come unto me and rest; lay down, O weary one, lay down your head upon my breast." I came to Jesus as I was, so weary, worn, and sad; I found in him a resting place, and he has made me glad. 2 I heard the voice of Jesus say, "Behold, I freely give the living water; thirsty one, stoop down and drink and live." I came to Jesus and I drank of that life-giving stream; my thirst was quenched, my soul revived, and now I live in him. 3 I heard the voice of Jesus say, "I am this dark world's light; look unto me; your morn shall rise and all your day be bright." I looked to Jesus and I found in him my star, my sun; and in that light of life I'll walk till traveling days are done.
