20 Dance Worship Songs For Kids & Adults

Dancing is a beautiful way to worship God. It’s how we can express our hearts to Him spiritually and physically. In the Bible, King David would lead the procession of worship with dancing and praise for God, all for the True King’s glory. Today, we can do the same by dancing to the best worship songs out there.

What are the best worship songs to dance to? The best songs to dance to include:

  • We Dance – Stephani Gretzinger
  • Freedom – Jesus Culture
  • Lions – Skillet
  • Open Up The Heavens – Vertical Worship

As you worship God through dance, remember that it’s not about busting the right move, or who you dance with. You can dance by yourself, with your family, kids, friends, and/or your church, but remember that it’s all for the purpose of dancing for God.

15 Worship Songs To Dance To For Adults

Most church services don’t go beyond the occasional raised hand during the service, but it’s actually more biblical to dance like a fool in God’s presence than to sway politely.

David was dancing with all his might before the Lord wearing a linen ephod. He and the whole house of Israel were bringing up the ark of the Lord with shouts and the sound of the ram’s horn.

2 Samuel 6:14-15 CSB

After this verse, it talks about David’s wife Michal disapproving of David’s dancing before the Lord, but that didn’t stop David.

Like David, we don’t have to care what people think about us in church or in our own worship time. All we get to do is accept the abundant life that Jesus has for us by enjoying Him through dance.

1. We Dance By Stephani Gretzinger

We Dance is probably one of the best songs to start with, since it’s a song about being completely in love with God and trusting Him to lead us in dance.

Dancing with the Holy Spirit can be intimidating at first, especially if you don’t know a thing about dancing, but this song reminds you with a gentle melody that all you need is Jesus.

2. Freedom By Jesus Culture

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. That is the anthem of this song, and its fun, powerful beat inspires you to run out of the shadows and into freedom with Jesus.

The reality is that the Holy Spirit is with us as believers, and if that’s the case, then we can access freedom in our lives from anything we’ve been enslaved to at any time.

3. Lions By Skillet

Lions by skillet is a battle song to dance to and speak words of life over yourself and fellow believers.

You’ll definitely find yourself jumping up and down to the beat since this song reminds us that we are not victims. We are victors with Christ, and in Him, we can worship by standing tall like giants and walking as lions for His glory.

4. Close By Tauren Wells

Close is a quirky pop song by Tauren Wells that is impossible not to dance to. It’s fun, lighthearted, and perfect if you want to praise God for how close He truly is to you.

5. Love By We Are Messenger

Love by We Are Messengers is another irresistible song that’s full of great reminders of God’s love for us even in the loneliest, hardest, and craziest times of life.

6. Rattle By Elevation Worship

Rattle by Elevation Worship will make you want to clap, jump, and shout for the new life that God offers us.

This is a great song to worship to as a way to battle for those in your life who aren’t saved yet. Singing and dancing Rattle over family members, friends, and your own life will remind you of how God sings, dances, and declares life over all of us.

7. Open Up The Heavens By Vertical Worship

Open up the Heavens is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a prayer for God to bring down His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven so that we can experience an abundance of His presence.

This song has an exciting buildup, but the best part is that it focuses on God from beginning to end.

8. Trusted By Jillian Edwards

Trusted has a slower, more peaceful flow to it, and it’s perfect if you’re feeling lead to slow down and dance in a lyrical style.

This type of song allows you to process through your heavier emotions and then offer them back up to God.

9. Teach Me To Dance By Jervis Campbell

Teach Me to Dance is also a slower song, but gains some traction in the chorus. The lyrics and melody are both beautiful and inspire a deeper trust and relationship with God.

Whether you know how to dance or not, this song will open your eyes to surrendering to God and letting Him teach you how to dance His way.

10. No Shame By Tenth Avenue North

Similar to Close, by Tauren Wells, No Shame is a funky, quirky song that makes you want to worship God for the freedom He’s given you.

As quirky as this song is, it’s also incredibly vulnerable about the struggles men in particular face with dancing and worshipping before the Lord. If you’re looking to be encouraged through music about how to break out of shame and dance for God, then this is the song for you.

11. More Than Conquerors By Rend Collective

More Than Conquerors is a powerful and convicting song that will encourage you to agree with God about what He says about you.

This song is folk-rock and extremely uplifting. It will make you want to do a jig as you sing about how through Christ, we are more than conquerors.

12. Famous For/Do It Again By Tauren Wells And

Another song by Tauren Wells and others, Famous For is a song for declaring and remembering who God is, what He’s done, and His promises for us.

This song sends shivers down my spine every time, so it’s the best song for getting pumped up about what God is doing in our lives, and all over the world.

13. Let Go By Hillsong

Let Go by Hillsong is all about surrendering to God. One thing about surrender is that when we realize how good God is, we realize that giving our control back to Him gives us freedom, hope, and peace, and that’s what this melody is full of.

14. Provider By Cade Thopmson

Provider is a pop song that acknowledges how hard it can be to trust God for provision. But, when we remember who He is and what He’s done for us in the past, we can worship Him in advance for how He’ll continue to provide for us.

15. Start Over By Flame

Start Over is a Christian-rap song by Flame featuring NF. Both artists sing about the gospel message in all of their music and this song is no different.

If you’re wanting to dance through the gospel in a unique way, this song will be perfect for you.

5 Worship Songs To Dance To For Kids

In the Bible, Jesus said “let the little children come to me”. Jesus loves kids and wants them to grow up knowing how important worship is so that they will follow the Father. That’s why I’ve found 5 of the best worship songs for your kids to dance to:

1. Full Armor Of God By KidSpring Children’s Ministry

Full Armor of God is a funny, memorable song to help your kids know the different aspects of the armor of God found in Ephesians 6.

By the end of this song, your kids will be giggling and singing along to the catchy tune.

2. King Of The Jungle By CJ And Friends

King of the Jungle by CJ and Friends is an interactive song for younger kids. It’s all about pointing to God as the King of everything and getting kids excited about worship.

3. One Way With CJ And Friends

One way is a dance-a-long and sing-along song that’s upbeat, silly, and focused on Jesus. Jesus is the way, truth, and the life, and this song helps kids know and grow into that truth.

4. Tell The World By Hillsong Kids

If you want your kids to learn how important it is to share the gospel with the whole world, then this is the perfect song. It’ll get them dancing, thinking about the story of Jesus, and help them think about how to love their neighbor.

5. You Are Good By Bethel Music Kids

You Are Good by Bethel Music Kids is great for engaging all your kids, even the ones who may be ‘too cool for school’. It’s also based on the original version of the song You Are God by Bethel, which makes it great for anyone and everyone to dance to.

Worshiping God Through Dance Matters

Worshipping God through dance matters because God calls us to steward our bodies and souls well. Our bodies and souls together are our temples, which we can make as a holy place for the Holy Spirit to dwell inside us.

Dance worship is a way to let the Holy Spirit dwell in us and fill us with all the fullness of God. It’s a way to surrender our physical and spiritual selves to Him, and a way to glorify His name.

We were meant to worship Him more deeply than solely raising our hands on a Sunday morning, so let’s soak in His presence and love through dance worship. We can dance to these worship songs by ourselves, with our friends, our churches, and even with our kids, all so that we can give God our hearts by dancing our hearts out for Him.

Praise and Worship Based on the Bible (Part 2.2)


In addition to the verbal, sound expression of praise and praise, the Bible defines a variety of our physical, outward manifestation in the worship of God.

Standing. Standing is a sign of respect. If some important person enters the room, then those who are waiting for him get to their feet, expressing their respect and respect. Often the Holy Spirit prompts us to stand in reverence before the face of the Lord.

Ps. 134: 1,2 praise the name of the Lord, praise, slaves of the Lord standing in the house of the Lord, in the courtyards of our god of our Psalm 133: 1 Bless the gentlemen now , all the servants of the Lord, standing in the house of the Lord, during the night

Procession . God has often commanded His people to march.


A. Perhaps the most famous example of this is the procession around Jericho ( Jos.Nav.6 ). The people of Israel did this at the command of God, as a result of which the walls of Jericho were destroyed.

B. Jehoshaphat marched with his army, singing praises to God, and the Lord betrayed their enemies, although they were much more numerous than them ( 2 Numbers 20:22 ).

C. The Bride of Christ is represented as a marching army, with banners unfurled ( Song of Songs 6:4,10 ).

Many walls are being torn down today as God's people march in response to God's command. Many churches held processions in response to promptings from the Holy Spirit. The procession around the church may seem strange to people, as it may have been in the case of Jericho, but the results of this often turned out to be quite impressive.
The walls of spiritual bonds, pride and bitterness in the churches have been broken down through this. This kind of procession is sometimes called the "Jericho Procession". Some call them "the procession of the glory of God. "

Hand up.

A. We have already considered the raising of hands as a semantic (not basic) shade of thanksgiving in worship.

B. In addition, the raising of hands throughout the world is accepted as a symbol of complete surrender and submission. In other words, by raising our hands, we symbolize our total submission to God. We seem to say that we belong entirely to Him.

Q. We have no desire to fight against Him, we no longer have weapons in our hands to fight against Him. For those who have NOT surrendered completely to God, this is quite difficult to do, although it seems like such a simple thing they are quite resistant to this way of worship. However, once they have done this, they are greatly liberated, and in the future they often express their praise in this way.

D. This is also evidence of spiritual thirst and a great desire for God.

Psalm 143:6 I stretch out my hands to you; my soul is to Thee like a thirsty earth

Psalm 27:2 Hear the voice of my prayers when I cry out to You, when I raise my hands to Your holy temple


A. EXPRESSES ADMIRE. When someone does something that deserves our admiration or approval, and we want them to know about it, we often express it with applause. For example, when a pianist plays a piece of music superbly, the audience often expresses this with prolonged applause. If they want to express even greater admiration, they get to their feet and applaud. We call it an ovation.

If God is so beautiful, and He has done so many magnificent things that deserve our approval and sincere admiration, is it strange that we want to express this with applause?

The Lord commanded us all:

Ps.46:2 Clap your hands, all nations, shout to God with a voice of joy;

V. EXPRESSES JOY. Applause is also a symbol of joy. When children are very happy about something, they begin to clap their hands. We are the children of the Living God. We rejoice and clap our hands like children, each time in response to the manifestations of God's Father's love.

2 Kings 11:12 And he brought out the king's son, and placed on him a [royal] crown and ornaments, and made him king, and anointed him, and applauded and exclaimed: long live the king!

Isaiah 55:12 So you will go out rejoicing and be sent off in peace; mountains and hills will sing a song before you, and all the trees in the field will clap their hands to you.

Ps 97: 8.9 let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains rejoice together 9before the Lord

Worship and Worship . These two forms of praise can often be found together when describing the worship of the Lord, since adoration expresses a deeper form of respect than simple worship.

* Worship - Make a bow as a sign of greeting, gratitude, respect, during prayer; An expression of special reverence, respect, devotion to someone or something. with your visit.

1 Kings 1:31 And Bathsheba leaned her face to the ground, and bowed to the king, and said, May my lord King David live forever!

*Adoration - very often when people are overwhelmed by the feeling of God's presence and His glory, they express it by kneeling. This is evidence of our reverence and respect for the Lord. (Gen.24:26,28; Gen.41:43)

4:6 Come, let us worship, and let us bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Creator


One day, all the knees will bow before Him.

Isaiah 45:23 I swear by me, out of my mouth comes righteousness, an unchanging word, that every knee shall bow before me, every tongue shall swear by me (

0016 Romans 14:11).

Phil. 2: 10 so that all the knee of heaven, earthly and underworld

2APA 2APA. five cubits wide and three cubits high, and set him in the midst of the court; and stood upon it, and knelt before all the congregation of Israel, and lifted up their hands to heaven...

2 Chronicles 29:29,30 When the burnt offering was over, the king and all who were with him knelt down and bowed down. 30 And king Hezekiah and the princes said to the Levites that they should praise the Lord with the words of David and Asaph the seer, and they praised with joy and bowed and worshiped.

Dan. 6:10 … and he knelt down three times a day and prayed to his God and praised Him, as he had done before.

LUK. 22: 41 and he himself moved away from them to the rotation of the stone, and, having kneeling, prayed

2APA 36: 24 and now I bow to the heart of of mine, my knees, my begging You for goodness [k].

John 19:30 And when Jesus tasted the vinegar, he said, It is done! And, bowing his head, betrayed the spirit.

2 Par.20:18 AND bowed Jehoshaphat with his face to the ground , and all the Jews and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell down before the Lord to worship the Lord.

Falling down before God.

*Nitz - down, face down, literally flattened (Is.51:23).

A. HUMILITY AND HONOR. Prostration (P.N.) is another extreme form of worship - a symbolic action, is a sign of deepest reverence, serving as an expression of the greatest humility before God and a special prayer.

Gen 17:1-3 Abram was ninety and nine years old, and the Lord appeared to Abram ...3 And Abram fell on his face. God continued to speak to him

Joshua 5:14 He said no; I am the leader of the army of the Lord, now I have come [here]. Jesus fell on his face to the ground, and bowed down and said to him, What will my master say to his servant?

Ezek. 2:1 Such was the vision of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. Seeing this, I fell on my face

B. HUMILITY AND PREDICTION (prostration, as an expression of the greatest humility and petition):

2 Sam. help, king!

Luke 5:12 While Jesus was in a certain city, a man came all over with leprosy, and when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face, begging Him and saying: Lord! if you want, you can cleanse me.

The Lord Jesus prayed in the same way.

Matt 26:39 And going a little way, he fell on his face and prayed and said: My Father! if possible, let this cup pass from me; however, not as I want, but as You.

C. HUMILITY AND REPENTANCE. The humility of one leads to the exaltation of the other. In this sense, it was performed by the saints of the Old Testament Church, especially when they prayed for their sins or for the sins of the people.

2 Samuel 12:16 And David prayed to God for the child, and David fasted, and he spent the night alone, lying on the ground.

Joshua 7:6 Jesus tore his clothes and fell on his face on the ground before the ark of the Lord [and lay] until evening, he and the elders of Israel, and sprinkled dust on their heads.

1 Kings 18:38 And the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt offering, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and swallowed up the water that was in the ditch. 39Seeing [this], all the people fell on their faces and said: The Lord is God, the Lord is God!

Ezek.9:8 And when they killed them, and I remained, then I fell on my face and cried out, and said: O Lord God! Will You destroy all the remnant of Israel by pouring out Your wrath on Jerusalem?

Num.16:4,5 When Moses heard this, he fell on his face 5 and said to Korah and to all his accomplices, saying, Tomorrow the Lord will show who is His, and who is holy, so that bring him closer to you;

1 Corinthians 14:24,25 But when all prophesy, and an unbeliever or ignorant one enters, he is reproved by all, judged by all. 25 And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed, and he falls on his face, worships God, and says, Truly God is with you. And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed, and he falls on his face, worships God, and says, Truly God is with you.

D. HONOR AND THANKS (falling down as an expression of the greatest reverence and thanksgiving):

2 Chronicles 7:3 all the children of Israel, seeing how the fire and the glory of the Lord came down on the house, fell face down on the ground, on the platform, and bowed down and praised the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures forever.

Luke 17:16 and fell on his face at his feet, giving thanks to him; and that was a Samaritan.

Lev.9:24 and fire went out from the Lord and burned the burnt offering and the fat on the altar; and saw all the people, and cried out for joy, and fell on his face.

Dancing. During dancing, the whole body is involved in the expression of joy, praise and worship before God. Due to the fact that dances are a very demonstrative and emotional form of worship, they were met with a certain amount of criticism and opposition, mainly from conservative-minded people. Because of the controversy, we will devote more time to reflect on this form of worship.

Hebrew and Greek word translated in the Bible as " dancing "has various meanings, including the following: "jumping", "jumping", "leaping". These meanings indicate that this kind of dancing is not planned or prescribed in movements, but is a spontaneous expression of joy before the Lord

1) David galloped before the Lord:

2 Sam. Lord (1 Chr. 15:29- galloping and having fun)

2) Figurative description of the Bridegroom (Jesus Christ) rejoicing at the Bride:

Song 2:8,9 The voice of my beloved! behold, he goes, gallops over the mountains, jumps over the hills. 9 My friend is like a chamois or a young deer

them to the temple, walking and jumping and praising God.

We used to understand dances - as a well-structured composition, and Mariam just took a timpana and started dancing SPONTANEOUSLY, expressing her feelings and emotions.

This is about simplicity, so that everyone understands that the Lord likes dancing, when it even looks like some kind of jumping up of a child, simply because He sees joy, openness and freedom through it. God loves simplicity. When it comes to composition, not everyone can express feelings through dance, but when it comes to jumping, everyone can.

In particular, it must be remembered that dancing was an integral part of the glorification of the Israelite people. If you look at how the Jews dance, you can see that they do it simply without special memorization, the way they do it.

Psal. 149: 3 Yes, it praises its name with faces

*LIKI (Exodus 15. 20; Court 11.34; Luke 15.25) - joyful exclamations and dancing (hence - lickered). In ancient times, thanksgiving to God was often accompanied by a dance - galloping.

Psal. 150: 4 praise it with tympans and faces

Some Bible examples in relation to dancing

Exodus 15: 20 and took Mariam Prophetitsa, sister Aaronova.

In Joel 1:12 we see that drought and barrenness came upon the people of God, when "...the joy was gone among the sons of men"

Conducting a round dance (as one of the dance forms)

Jeremiah prophesied relative to the upcoming majestic recovery:

Jer.31: 4 I will arrange you again, and you will be arranged, Virgin Israelov, Virgin of Israeli, Virgin

1 Sam. 21:11 And his servants said to Anchish, Is this not David, the king of that country? Did they not sing to him in round dances and say: "Saul struck down thousands, and David - tens of thousands"?


Many who oppose dancing in the church today point out that it is a purely Old Testament feature and has no place in the New Testament church. However, when we read the New Testament, we find that they appeared there as well.

Jesus said:

Lk 6:230009 skirta "means " jump, jump, bounce ( for joy )" .

But the most common in the New Testament is the Greek word "agallia" , which means "rejoice - dance, triumph, rejoice greatly" . And it is not a deep, inner joy, but more of a dynamic and emotional expression of great joy that results in a "jubilant bouncing". Below we give some passages from the New Testament where this is mentioned.

1) Luke 1:46,47 And Mary said, My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoiced (agallia) in God my Savior Prison guard "...rejoiced (agallia) with all his house that he believed in God"

3) Believers jump for joy because of God's power to salvation and that magnificent inheritance that is prepared for them

1 Peter 1:3-7 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in His great mercy has resurrected us by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead to a living hope, 4 to an incorruptible, pure, unfading inheritance, stored up in heaven for you, 5 by the power of God through faith kept unto salvation ready to open recently. 6 In this rejoice (agalia) , having now grieved a little, if necessary, from various temptations, 7 so that your faith tested will be more precious than gold that perishes, although it is tested by fire, to praise and honor and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ

4) At the very end of the New Testament we find the following (prophecy about the future):

Rev. 19:7 Let us rejoice and be glad (agallia) and give Him glory; for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has prepared Herself

When, according to the prophecy of Jeremiah, everything will be restored, then dances (round dances) will be an integral element of rejoicing ( Jer.


They are spontaneous and simple in style. These are by no means prepared, learned and harmonious movements. They are expressed in bouncing, jumping and other movements.

A. Sometimes they happen:

1) to the accompaniment of music and instruments.

1 Chr.15:29 When the ark of the covenant of the Lord entered the city of David, Michal, the daughter of Saul, looked out of the window, and seeing King David galloping and having fun, she despised him in her heart.

2 Samuel 6: 21-22 And David said to Michal: Before the Lord, who preferred me to your father and to all his house, establishing me as the leader of the Lord's people Israel; I will play and dance before the Lord ; 22 and I will humble myself even more, and become even more insignificant in my eyes, and before the maidservants of whom you speak I will be glorious .

Psalm.149:3 let them praise His name with faces (dances), on the timbrel and harp let them sing to Him

2) to the accompaniment of hymns

Ex. 21 And Miriam sang before them: Sing to the Lord, for He is highly exalted, He cast his horse and rider into the sea.

B. May occur individually or as a group .

1) David danced before the Lord ( 1 Par. 15:29; 2 Samuel 6: 21-22 ).
2) Miriam and ALL the women danced (Ex. 15:20,21).

V. This is not dancing with a person of the opposite sex.

1) Miriam danced with all the women (Ex. 15:20,21)
2) The youths and the elders danced together (Jer 31:13)

D. and the elders were together (Jer 31:13)

E. Songs and dances often went together.

1 Sam. 29:5 Is not that David, to whom they sang in round dances , saying: "Saul struck down thousands, and David - tens of thousands

E. God foretold about the stopping of dancing 9027.

Jer.31: 4 ... and go out in a round dance of merry
Jer. 31: 13 Then the girl will have fun in a round dance ...

Warning !!!

Plot dancing associated with apostasy, idolatry, immorality and worldly influence.These are primarily dances of flirting, attracting excessive attention, with elements of eroticism, seducing men or women, etc. You can see this in any club or at a drunken party.We can see such an example in Exodus 32:19, which describes the dances around the golden calf.

Ex 32:17-19 And Jesus heard the voice of the noisy people, and said to Moses, There is a cry of war in the camp. 18 But [Moses] said, This is not the cry of those who overcome, nor the cry of those who are slain; I hear the voice of the singing. 19 And when he drew near to the camp, and saw the calf and the dancing, then he was inflamed with anger, and threw the tablets out of his hand, and broke them under the mountain;

Satan has a counterfeit in everything. However, this only confirms the presence of something real, genuine. So, for example, in addition to the spiritual dances discussed earlier, the dances can be of a compositional nature, beautifully staged - this does not give them the definition of CARNAL, so the fact that Satan counterfeits something does not mean that we should abandon the real and not apply it.


Joy in the Lord is another way to glorify God. Examples:

1) When Nehemiah came to the king with a sad face, he immediately noticed something was wrong.

German 2:1 Why is your face sad? you are not sick, this is not; Is it true sadness in the heart?

Nehemiah was afraid. Coming into the king's presence with a sad face was a kind of sign that a person is unhappy in his service to the king. And that would be kind of an insult , which would not be tolerated by the king. This frightened Nehemiah. He immediately began to explain the reason for his sad appearance and that it had nothing to do with his service to the king.
No one dared to come into the presence of the king with a sad face, and yet many Christians come to the King of kings with a dejected and sad face. If we do this, then we are offending God.
By this we seem to show that we are not satisfied with life under His control.
The best way in which we can stand before the King is with joy in our hearts, thus indicating that we are grateful for the honor that He has given us - to be His servants!

2) God has appointed a place where He could meet with the people.

Deut. 12:11,12 Then, what place will the Lord your God choose to have His name dwell there , there bring all that I command you: your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, tithes yours, and the uplifting of your hands, and all the chosen things according to your vows, which you have promised the Lord. And rejoice before the Lord , your God, you and your sons, and your daughters, and your servants. ..

Therefore, the Lord commanded that when we gather in the place that He predetermined to meet with Him, then we must come with joy. David understood this when he spoke,

Psalm 99:4 they should have done it with joy before the Lord

Lev.23:40 ...and rejoice before the Lord your God for seven days

When we give a gift to someone, their joy expresses appreciation and satisfaction.
Therefore, we too, when we rejoice before the Lord, express our gratitude and the fact that we find complete satisfaction in Him . It is, therefore, a pity that many churches hold to the idea that reverence is expressed only in solemn silence and moderation.
They consider it disrespectful to express joy and glee. Nothing could be further from the truth than such an understanding.
Christians should be the most joyful people in society and this should be obvious to everyone. The general service of the church should be a kind of holiday . Then it will attract many more people, because it will reflect the true essence of God to a greater extent. Instead, many modern churches turn people away with their gloominess and coldness. Services are too solemn and formal.
People behave somehow unrealistically and in a manner unusual for them. It should not be. Let's return to the spirit of joy before the Lord. The Holy Spirit brings joy, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17).

There are many different ways to express joy. For example, singing joyful songs instead of sad dirges.

2 Chr.29:30 And the king Hezekiah and the princes said to the Levites that they should praise the Lord with the words of David and Asaph the seer, and they praised with joy and bowed and worshiped.

5) Joy in the Lord also helps us feel at ease in God's presence. We need less formalism and more reality! This world is so sad that we add our sadness. Let's strive to kindle the light of life, because we are the light of this world.
In the New Testament, the Greek word " agallio " (which we have already analyzed before - see "dances") is also translated as " joy !". Literally, it means " jump for joy ", " to be full of joy and fun ".
This is an expression of that joy that manifests itself spontaneously, freely and naturally - so much so that it can lead us to jump for joy, like children do.

Laughter . There is such a thing as holy laughter when the very desire to laugh before the Lord comes from above.0013 For example, the people of Israel experienced laughter of joy when they returned from captivity.

Psalm.125:1-3 1 When the Lord returned the captivity of Zion, we were as if seeing in a dream: 2 then our lips were full of gladness (laughter), and our tongue was singing; Then it was said among the peoples: "The Lord has done great things for them!" 3 The Lord did great things with us: we rejoiced.

Eccl 3:4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

Luke 6: 21 Blessed are those who hunger today, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are those who weep now, for you will laugh.

may also be an acceptable response in glorifying God, but this is not a cry of regret or an outpouring of heartache of the soul, but an expression of gratitude and appreciation .
Sometimes when we think about the greatness and goodness of God, the only acceptable response to His mercy may be tears of gratitude.
Don't be afraid to do it. This is by no means a sign of weakness. Let the tears flow. In our essence, we try to avoid tears, but sometimes tears can be an expression of our deep desire and we cannot express this desire in any other way.
This often results in great relief.
One should not cry a lot, otherwise it may be a sign of some spiritual problem that needs to be cured.
When Nehemiah read and explained the Word of God, all the people wept, listening to him.
Nehemiah allowed them to weep for a while, but then he interrupted their lamentation and said:

Neh. the Lord is your strength

Too much crying weakens a person, while joy before the Lord is a source of strength.


Silence. The exact opposite of the sounds of chanting, musical instruments and dancing jubilations, is the expression of praise through silence and silence - Ecclesiastes 3:7 ...a time to be silent and a time to speak

Psalm 45:11 stop (calm down) and know that I am God... be afraid of silence. Sometimes the Holy Spirit brings total stillness and silence to the whole congregation. At times like these, silence is very important. Often this is evidence of reverence and reverence for God.
Someone can stand (sit) in silence before God contemplating, exalting and worshiping Him.

Dancing as worship to God

Dancing as worship to God If you can speak, you can sing. If you can walk, you can dance. African wisdom. Dance is an expression of soul and body, merged into one. It is impossible not to know how to dance, because everyone has a soul. But it's not just about one soul! More - in the music that the Lord has put into our souls. He gave man the opportunity to hear this music and rejoice in Him. We call this “music of the soul” joy. Well, dance is nothing but a manifestation of this very music of the soul. But, let's not forget what kind of music - such is the dance, what kind of soul - such is the music. Dance is the original, most ancient form of self-expression. Through the language of movements, a deep connection with the emotional and spiritual world is realized. And man, of course, has been dancing since the first days of his creation. This is described quite often in the Holy Scriptures. The dance is described as representing joy and contrasting grief: "...a time to mourn and a time to dance" (Ecclesiastes 3:4). “The joy of our heart has ceased; our dances have turned into mourning” (Jer 5:15). “I will build you up again, and you will be built up, O virgin of Israel, you will again be adorned with your timbrels and go out in a dance of those who are merry” (Jer 31:4). “Then the maiden will have fun in the round dance, and the young men and the elders together…” (Jer 31:13) Our Community has a vision to revive that real service to the Lord, which we see in Scripture. And an integral part of this ministry is dance. Without it, it is impossible to imagine joyful Jewish holidays or solemn moments of worship. And don't be embarrassed by the opportunity to dance and worship God at the same time. After all, the joy of our heart is so dear to the Lord, and if this joyful music of worship fills the soul, it is so beautiful to express it in a dance before His face. As a help and support for those who want to express their joy of the soul in this way, in our Community there is a ministry of dance worship, whose ministers, along with the musicians, are the Levites of the Lord. Their task is to reflect God's heart and transmit His light to people. To date, the dance worship ministry in our Community is represented by two groups: a Jewish folk dance group and a dance group with flags. If you want to become a member of the dance ministry, please contact Olga Mutafiy (Jewish folk dances) and Irina Tulchevskaya (flags) or our Community office at tel. +38-048-711-14-95.
