Lord of the Dance

And David danced before the LORD…
2 Samuel 6:14 (ESV)
The Great Dance does not wait to be perfect until the peoples of the Low Worlds are gathered into it. We speak not of when it will begin. It has begun from before always. There was no time when we did not rejoice before His face as now. The dance which we dance is at the centre and for the dance all things were made. Blessed be He!
                                                                                                                             — Perelandra, C. S. Lewis

We all appear as dunces;
Ran down blind and dance to the abyss.
Where Shakespeare’s ruffians dance and trot like puppets.
Before the stage goes dark,    — dance with the One who brung you!
