Dance With Me

(A lament for the lonely)

“I will build you up again and you will be rebuilt… again you will take up your tambourines and go out to dance with the joyful… Then maidens will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.” Jeremiah 31: 4, 13


Oh Abba, will You dance with me tonight?

Hold me in Your strong omnipotent might?

Pick me up–let’s whirl through galaxies and space;

Take me in Your arms of loving grace.

A broken heart You never will despise.

You hear each silent sob that my heart cries.

~~~~

I’m offering my hand; please twirl me once again;

Sweep away the darkness and the pain.

I need Your arms around me to feel Your strength and might,

Like frightened child cries, “Hold me! Hold me tight!”

My broken heart You told me You never will despise.

You hear each silent sob that my heart sighs…

~~~~

So pick me up and dance with me My faithful Father-friend;

Whispering Your love will never end.

Lead me to that dance floor where the starry rivers flow,

Dancing cheek to cheek so I will know…

This broken heart of mine You never will despise,

You hear each silent sob that my heart cries.

~~~~

I need for You to hold me with all Your strength and might.

Please, dance with me, dance with me tonight.
