Song Description

Song about looking forward to heaven and rejoining long-lost friends and family, but feeling OK to wait until God's time. The sure happiness that comes when one has complete faith in the words of Jesus, "Grace and faith will save you."

Story Behind the Song

Trying to deal with the inevitibility of death made me focus on the happy aspects of heaven, where we will Dance!

Lyrics

DANCE!
Copyright Carlene Thissen 2009
Time: 2/2 Key - A Tempo: 176

VERSE 1:

When my life on earth is done, one of these days I'm headin' home
It'll be in God's own time - not mine
I go to church and do my best to love everyone
So when they call that role up yonder, I'll be fi-ne

Some day we'll all be / there together / for e - e - e- ev - er
And we will dance! And we will sing! Glory to our King, Glory to our King
And we will dance! And we will sing! Glory to our King, Glory to our King

VERSE 2:

While I wait I can't help antici pate
But it ain't so bad right here - think I'll stick around
Until I hear St. Peter call my name from heaven's gate
'Cause he knows I was lost but now I'm found.

We'll all be there together for e - e - e- ev - er
And we will dance! And we will sing! Glory to our King, Glory to our King
And we will dance! And we will sing! Glory to our King, Glory to our King

BRIDGE:
I wasn't scared of dying/ it's the unknown that I / feared
But I learned / to believe -- Jesus / made it very clear
That grace and faith will save me / and I'll be born / again
And when I see my friends and family / I'll yell, "Here I am!"

And we will dance! And we will sing! Glory to our King, Glory to our King
And we will dance! And we will sing! Glory to our King, Glory to our King

VERSE 3:

When I'm gone, hold on, to memories of my song
Cause I'll be addin' angel voices to our band
And we'll look down - to hear you sing along
In joy 'cause you know I reached the promised land

Some day we'll all be there together for e - e - e- ev - er
So Dance! And Sing! Glory to our King, Glory to Our King
(Come on and) Dance! Sing! Glory to our King, Glory to our King
Glory to our Kinnnnngggggg!!!!!
