Dancing With God

There was a time ~ when my feet couldn’t dance, quite right …
It was before I met Jesus; my heart didn’t feel light …
My heart was sorrowful; my feet felt out of place …
It was because I hadn’t yet ~ let Jesus steer the pace.

He gave me a gentle nudge in the heart one night …
And when my heart started dancing ~ my feet danced right.
Swinging and swaying ~ the way He wanted me to go.
It was a wonder to my heart ~ and, I just loved Him so.

He took my hand and guided me ~ out onto the floor of life.
Isn’t it funny, there is never ~ anymore, very much strife?
He tells me He loves me ~ and in His hands, He holds me.
He guides me and helps me ~ when the stars, I can’t see.

He guided me and swayed me, to let Him into my heart …
And it’s such a joy ~ living, I never want ~ from Him, to part.
When I get to Heaven ~ maybe He’ll dance me on streets of gold,
With all the awesome wonders ~ up there to behold.

So behold the wonder of His step ~ take the chance …
This is an awesome God ~ who will teach you to dance.
He’ll never steer you wrong ~ just listen to His word.
He’ll nudge your heart right and it will feel as light as a bird.
