Perfectly In Time

The man placed his hand on the woman's back, 
took her hand, 
and waited for the music to begin. 

With adoring eyes the woman 
looked up at his handsome face, 
silently counting the beats of the melody.  
1, 2, 3. 
1, 2, 3.  

The man gave a nod and 
Whirled the woman onto the dance floor.  
Their feet were perfectly in time 
With each other and as the man led.
The dance moved as smooth as glass. 

He took her hand gently
And spun her about across the floor.
They moved in unison, perfectly, gracefully
With his hand on the woman's back. 

The music moved on,
1, 2, 3.
1, 2, 3. 
Never a stop, never a hesitation,
With silent counting of the melody. 

But how can such dancing
Move with such grace?
How can the beating of music
keep tune and time?

The man is the leader, strong and firm
Leading the woman's movements.
The woman must learn to trust the guide,
Or else the dance will falter.

1, 2, 3. 
1, 2, 3.
He offers us His hand to have
He leads us with the graceful steps
And we must try to trust his plan. 
1, 2, 3. 
1, 2, 3. 
Or else the dance will falter.

"He offers us His hand to have..."
