"The Danse" as written by and Kemper Crabb....
.:: The Danse ::.

All creation moves in a cosmic Danse
Before the Lord her King
and the rhythms, the reason, the rhyme
of the danse pulses within everything
And the universe wheels and whirls like
a dervish in perfect seven-step time.
The Lord made the Danse,
He taught her the steps, and He
causes the songs to shine.

We must danse, danse, danse
danse in God's honor.
We must yield all of our steps unto the King
We must danse, danse, danse
danse in God's honor.
Let His praises ring throughout the earth.

Adam and Eve dansed in Eden's environs
early`in earth's morning air
They named all the animals musical names
glorious potentiality shared.
But Lusifer sang out a serpentine song
and he offered death's danse as a token.
In pausing to listen, Adam missed his step
Earth's harmony in the danse broken.

Jesus dansed into the world.
singing his heavenly song.
He taught the danse to those who would
listen and learn as He moved along.
But the stpes of His danse led to a cross
where He died as the haters mocked on.
But he dansed through death's arms
and over hell's gate and in three days
dansed forth from his tomb.

    General CommentIt is indeed spelled right. :)

    This song was actually written and originally performed by Kemper Crabb. I mention this because he actually toured with Caedmon's Call, and is currently part of the awesome prog-rock band Atomic Opera. Check them out.

    A really cool allegory for man's fall, Christ's redemption of man, and the wonderful structure of His creation.
