My soul does dance in breaths that soar,
far beyond and through all sacred lore.
How do I feel when the heavens mist?
Dear God, it is like the sweetest kiss.
My soul lifts more into Your arms
and dance, I do with earth-born charms.
It matters not at all that I
Would motion all the sky to cry.
Not to weep for sadness due
But for the joy of knowing You.
This, my dance forever, until
all, joins, Yours, in freedom’s will.
