I haven't had a lot of time for guitar recently, but this is one of several tabs that various nice people have sent me. I haven't reviewed or editted them, so no guarantees about accuracy, but I'm sure people will find them useful.

Intro:  D   Dsus    C2    A   D   Dsus   A  Asus   A


    D        Dsus       C2     A
All creation moves in a cosmic Danse
D          Dsus     A  Asus  A
Before the Lord her King;
        D            Dsus        C2                 A
And the rhythms, the reason, the rhyme of the danse
D      Dsus        A  Asus   A
Pulses within everything.
        Bm                  D
And the universe wheels and whirls like a dervish	
   Em                 A  Asus A
In perfect seven-step time
    D             G
The Lord made the danse
   Em             A
He taught her the steps
       D          G      A
And He causes the sun to shine


CHORUS:

        G     D     Em    D              A
We must danse danse danse danse in God's honor
	G     D          Em    D        A
We must yield all of our steps unto the King
        G     D     Em    D              A
We must danse danse danse danse in God's honor
                G           D       Em  D
Let His praises ring throughout the earth


   D     Dsus          C2       A
Adam and Eve danced in Eden's environs
D        Dsus            A  Asus  A
Early in earth's morning-air
     D             Dsus    C2      A
They named all the animals musical names
         D      Dsus  A     Asus   A
Glorious potentiality shared
    Bm                 D
But Lucifer sang out a serpentine song
       Em                           A  Asus A
And he offered death's dance as his token
    D          G
In  pausing to listen
 Em             A
Adam missed his step
        D       G            A
Earth's harmony in the dance broken


CHORUS


D     Dsus     C2     A
Jesus danced into the world
D           Dsus     A  Asus  A
Singing His heavenly song
   D          Dsus     C2              A
He taught the dance to those who would listen
    D        Dsus     A     Asus   A
And learn as He moved along
        Bm                 D
But the steps of His dance led to a cross
         Em                           A Asus A
Where He died while the haters mocked on
       D                      G
But He danced through death's arms
    Em          A
And over hell's gate
       D                 G              A
And in three days danced forth from His tomb


CHORUS
