Lord of the Dance (I danced in the morning)

This hymn was written by English historian, folk-singer and song-writer Sydney Carter (1915-2004), in 1963.

The tune is adapted from a traditional Shaker hymn, Simple Gifts.

The lyrics tell a very simplified version of Christ's life, using dance as a metaphor.

It has been covered by a very wide range of artists, perhaps the most famous being Michael Flatley, who choreographed a dance setting which is the title track from a music and dance production.
