12. The Danse

In the Company of Angels: A Call to Worship
by Caedmon's Call



 

All creation moves in a cosmic danse
Before the Lord her King;
and the rythms, the reason, the rhyme
of the danse pulses within everything.
And the universe wheels and whirls like
a dervish in perfect seven-step time
The Lord made the Danse,
He taught her the steps, and He causes the songs to shine.

We must danse, danse, danse
danse in God's honor.
We must yield all our steps unto the King.
We must danse, danse, danse
danse in God's honor.
Let His praises ring throughout the earth

Adam and Eve dansed in Eden's environs
Early in earth's morning air
They named all the animals musical names
Glorious potentiality shared.
But Lucifer sang out a serpentine song
And offered death's danse as a token.
And pausing to listen Adam missed his step;
Earth's harmony in the danse broken.

We must danse, danse, danse
danse in God's honor.
We must yield all our steps unto the King.
We must danse, danse, danse
danse in God's honor.
Let his praises ring throughout the earth.

Jesus dansed into the world
Singing His heavenly song.
He taught the Danse to those who would
listen and learn as He moved along.
But the steps of His Danse led to a cross
where He died while the haters mocked on.
But He Dansed through death's arms
and over Hell's gate and in three days
dansed forth from His tomb

We must danse, danse, danse
danse in God's honor.
We must yield all our steps unto the King.
We must danse, danse, danse
danse in God's honor.
Let His praises ring throughout the earth



Behind the Song:
''The Danse' is a celebration of the Gospel Story based on the Medieval view of Creation as a vast dance of praise to her Creator, which was interrupted by the Fall, described in God's Law, loved out perfectly in the Life of Jesus, and restored by the Death, Resurrection, and Ascension of the same Lord Jesus, so that those who believe and receive new life in Him can once again begin to dance the Great Dance to God's glory again.' - Caedmon's Call
