Blackmore's Night - Lord Of The Dance / Simple Gifts Lyrics




I danced in the morning when the world had begun
I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun
I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth
At Bethlehem I had my birth

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

'Tis the gift to be simple,
'tis the gift to be free.
'Tis the gift to come down
where we ought to be.
And when we find ourselves
in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley
of love and delight.

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

When true simplicity is gained,
To bow and to bend
we shall not be ashamed.
To turn, turn
will be our delight,
'Till by turning, turning
we come round right.

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

I danced in the morning when the world had begun
I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun
I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth
At Bethlehem I had my birth

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

Dance, dance, wherever you may be
I am the lord of the dance, said he
And I lead you all, wherever you may be
And I lead you all in the dance, said he

    gabrielJohnP ...you forgot several "ands" AND you should capitalize the H in He.

  7. Leah Walentosky

    These are both Easter hymns

  8. Hyperspice -Music and other junk

    Where's Michael Flatley?

    peter forden

    this song was written by an englishman its NOT Irish the tune is an ancient scots tune

  9. Talar Sews Stuff

    The American song Simple Things borrowed directly from this!

    Ronald Cammarata

    No, the American folk song Simple GIFTS, is the original song, written in 1848. The song Lord of the Dance is simply new words given to the original melody over a hundred years later.

  10. nobody Uknow

    I am cheating right now. I usually don't let myself listen to Christmas music until Thanksgiving but nothing lifts the spirits like Christmas songs. Blackmore's Night singing makes it more so.

  11. Hudson Bailey

    Dancing is lifted to a new dimension. Lord dances with us in tights under lights and asks our gifts be simple. Beauteous.

  12. Ben V

    This. Is. AMAZING!!! WOW, sooooo good!!!!!!!!!

  13. FurryAminal

    *That* moment on Rev, anyone.....

  14. Final Frontier

    cant stop listening to their version of Lord of the dance. Never thought I would like an album of carols but this is great.

  15. GCoyote06

    What can you say. He found a good woman who could also sing. The rest is just details.

  16. MetalViking

    Wait... This is Ritchie Blackmore from Deep Purple? Wow... He can do very different styles... Medieval and Hardrock, I like both

    Final Frontier

    Ritchie can play anything. He's a genius!!!!

  17. charlie ricketts
