"At that time, says the LORD, I will
be the God of all the families of Israel,
and they shall be my people… I have loved
you with an everlasting love; therefore I
have continued my faithfulness to you. Again
I will build you, and you shall be built,
O virgin Israel! Again you shall adorn yourself
with timbrels, and shall go forth in the
dance of the merrymakers…For thus says the
LORD: 'Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob,
and raise shouts for the chief of the nations;
proclaim, give praise, and say, 'The LORD
has saved his people, the remnant of Israel.'"
Dancing with Love
I will dance to the beat of my heart;
Not march to my mind's metronome.
From the Spirit will be where I start;
Each step of this dance draws me home.
The Spirit blows where the Lord's heart
The rhythms of love ebb and flow.
Hearts emptied of self the Spirit fills;
In this dance, God's love they will
He leads us, His partner, in this dance;
He guides us each step of the way.
Peace, joy and love outpoured entrance:
Each moment's a movement His way.
Lead me, Lord, to the beat of Your
Entrance my whole being with love.
Let us dance each step of life with
And with peaceful joy, rise above!
Your Partner in love, the Lord, will
This dance of Love fills every need!
