LORD, LET ME DANCE!
Lord, let me dance until my feet are sore
Let me reach to the heavens, ‘til I can reach no more
Let the music sound! Let it reach for the sky!
Let the birds hear it pounding as they upward fly
Let my body bend like the river’s stream
Let it sway towards the ocean as it does in my dreams
Let me dance and dance as I float on air
Let me soar towards the heavens on a musical prayer!
