Simple Gifts
[unknown] Lyrics

Simple gifts

'Tis a gift to be simple,
'Tis a gift to be free,
'Tis a gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
It will be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gained,
to bow and to bend, we will not be ashamed
To turn, turn, will be our delight,
'Til by turning, turning, we come round right.

(Kathy Sobansky of Clam Chowder wrote second verse of:)

"tis a gift to be simple,
'Tis a gift to be free,
For the proud are cast down deeper than the sea,
The first shall be last and the last shall be first,
And the meek at last shall receive the earth.

This sings well with Lord of the Dance lordance

The sweet and poignant words are an assurance that we will get through the tough times. This is a beautiful rendition.


Hope is in their music. We will make it together. It will take all of us.
