The rhythm within, the rhythm without

Give me a drum
and I’ll play you a tune
Sing along or hum
for the dance begins soon

The rhythm it speaks
and moves on its way
The dancers begin,
to its beats do they sway

The beat from within
the beat from without
the passion of rhythm
from the heart of no doubt

The story unfolds
countless tales of woe
The rhythm takes on
the seeds it must sow;
Each seed will be watered
and roots take their grasp
Each plant, it must grow
in your son or your daughter,
to rise up in rhythm
the passion of life
to rise up within,
the passion of Christ.
