Dancing Child

Keith Sanford

Shattered stones of rubble beneath her feet
Tiny child is dancing in the street
Fallen city ruins all around
One small drop of life in a dusty town
Far away I see a dancing child
Unadorned and poor, but still she smiled

Precious drop of life is dancing round
In a broken land it can be found
Feel the breath of God upon your face
See how this is now a holy place
Far away I see a dancing child
Unadorned and poor, but still she smiled

Who will see this dancing little girl?
Who will take the time to watch her twirl?
One small drop of life lights up the sky
Who will catch the splendor dancing by?
Far away I see a dancing child
Unadorned and poor, but still she smiled
