In the darkness of my spirit

From the Boundless Life collection

In the darkness of my spirit

When my blindness masks my sight

I will dance! dance! dance!

I will sing! sing! sing!

Of the coming of the light.

 

In the coldness of my spirit

When my winter has its way

I will dance! dance! dance!

I will sing! sing! sing!

Of the coming of the day.

 

In the grieving of my spirit

From the tears that bathe my loss

I will dance! dance! dance!

I will sing! sing! sing!

In the spirit of the Cross.

 

In the flowering of my spirit

As I celebrate love’s goal

I will dance! dance! dance!

I will sing! sing! sing!

Of the Christ who makes me whole.
