The Dance Divine

To commence the proper ballroom dance,
A gentleman asks first if the lady would,
Then offering his arm, to take hold of it,
He escorts her to their place on the floor.

Now face to face, He extends both hands,
Palms upward turned, inviting hers to his,
And then they wait for the music to play.

With the first note still hanging in the air,
The gentleman then forward bows, and
Only after her curtsey, he takes her hands,
And the dance of more than a lifetime begins.

Likewise, our Father has come so divine
To dance with us, hand in hand sublime,
To follow His lead until the end of time.

Immanuel* is with us on life's dance floor,
To dance with Him is what He came for,
Yashab** is all He asks, and nothing more,

To by Him abide,
To in Him reside,
To stay with Him
     forever side by side
          in the Dance Divine.

John 8:31-32; John 15:1-17
*Immanuel: God being with us
**Yashab: us being with God in return
