This is really fun to sing. It really lifts your spirit and gets yu going. The tune to this old song from the fifties kept going around in my head so I thought I'd change the words a little bit and sing the song for The Lord. Of course I had to change the name too so instead of Dance, Dance, Dance which as far as I can remember is the name of the song I decided to call it DANCE BEFORE THE LORD.  I wrote this several years ago . I think it was back in 1998.

Hope you enjoy it.



Dance, Dance, Dance,
Get up out of your seat!
Dance, Dance, Dance,
Make those floor boards creak!
Dance, Dance, Dance,
Send your praise to the sky!
The Lord He fills with joy and He satisfies!

Get up Brother, Sister,
Dance before The Lord!
To sit and hold your peace,
Is something you can't afford!
Give Him all your praise and His Name glorify!
Don't sit and put down something Brother you haven't tried!

You're gonna get The Spirit and you'll get the joy!
You're gonna feel like dancing,
When your voice you employ!
Get up on your feet,
Lift your hands to the sky!
Concentrate on Jesus, lift His Name up high

Dance, Dance, Dance,
Sing to The Lord above!
Dance, Dance, Dance,
Sing about His Love!
Dance, Dance, Dance,
He'll make you want to shout,
There's peace and joy with Jesus,
That's what He's all about!

I believe the Bible suggests we make a "Joyful" song to the Lord. Your psalm is uplifting and certainly touches readers hearts. Beautiful, Judy! Congratulations on a top win. Hugs, Carolyn

LOVE it! When music moves me at church (or anywhere) I can't help but get up and move, I absolutely love the feeling that you so aptly put into a poem and I'm not shy about it. God made us to dance - I know HE did, all cultures throughout time. A joy for me to read your poem. All the best ... CayCay
