6. Like Miriam Who Danced to Praise

Like Miriam who danced to praise
the parting of the sea,
and David, who before the ark,
danced on with ecstasy,
God, pour your spirit into us,
fill us with joy as well,
that we may also join the dance
and all your praises tell.

Like prophets dancing to your tune
before a royal throne,
or marching to a freedom song
or standing firm alone,
God, send us visions of your will,
reveal to us your Word,
that we may bravely dance our role
and speak what we have heard.

Like those who danced with Jesus Christ,
until his life was done,
then carried on the dance of love
that he had just begun,
God, fill us with their loyalty
and passion for their Friend,
that we may follow in their steps
to joy that has no end.
