Doing the Lord's Work by Saving the White Race

I am the life That’ll never, never die; I’ll live in you If you’ll live in me

(A thanks to our Sister Brooke for this one!)

Composed in 1963 – Many people believe it’s old because it’s a hymn they sang at school. Others may associate it with Celtic Dancing recently made popular but without a doubt it is a rewrite of “Simple Gifts” written in 1848, a work sung by the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing (more commonly called the Shakers)

Lord Of The Dance

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,
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,
But they would not dance
And they wouldn’t follow me.
I danced for the fishermen,
For James and John –
They came with me
And the dance went on.

Chorus
I danced on the Sabbath
And 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.

Chorus
I danced on a Friday
When 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 Life,
And I still go on.

Chorus
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.

Chorus
