SIMPLE GIFTS

Description:  Traditional Shaker song written by Elder Joseph Brackett in 1848. Arrangement by Aaron Copland from Old American Songs for voice and piano.

‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free,
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gain’d,
To bow and to bend we shan’t be asham’d,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come round right.
Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free,
‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

    I’ll be playing this song on my harp for an upcoming performance. Seems serendipitous that I have stumbled on your site.
    Om shanti.

    Simple types of promotional products like giftsare being used for promoting and advertising the brand as well as these products attract attention and give a personal touch to the advertisement message.

    Yogini
    Do you think that there are coincidences in our life?
    I don’t believe in coincidences because I see the play of the Divine.

  4. yogini Says:

    Actually, Peter, I don’t believe in coincidences either. I think that synchronicity is always ‘in play’….however, it depends on our level of awareness to see it.
    Namaste………….
