A Holy Dance

Pirouetting on full point 
She was a whirling top
Held position in her place
Until the spinning stopped

With graceful leaping far from it
Arching high into the air
Flying free, loosed from her trap
Where she had entwined there

Such abandon was the dance
From winding into free
Energy swirled tightly close
Then flung out joyously

Reflection of earth’s tensions felt
Healing’s joys of glad release
The dance portrayed reality
Hurts into grace poured free

For most such precise
Would drain them full to stop
Not so the dancer’s entity
Dance filled her to the top

Dance on, oh dancer, joyously
Fling bright to heaven’s sky
Waves of blessing flowing long
Dance praising God most high

Dance gloriously, rejoice again
Salvation o’er death won
Let beautiful expression given
Devotion in dance spun


Psalms 149:3 NKJV
“Let them praise His name with the dance; Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.”

Psalms 30:11-12 HCSB
“You turned my lament into dancing; You removed my sackclothand clothed me with gladness,
12 so that I can sing to You and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise You forever.”
