Simple Gifts

This beautiful Shaker hymn extolls the benefits of simplicity in our lives and how its grace can nurture peace of heart.  From Red's award-winning Favorite Sing Along Songs CD.

Simple Gifts

Tis a gift to be simple, tis a gift to be free
Tis a gift to come ‘round where we ought to be
And when we are in the place just right
We'll be in the valley of love and delight

When true simplicity is gained
To bow and to bend we won't be ashamed
To turn, to turn t'will be our delight
Till by turning, turning we come ‘round right
