4th Grade “Simple Gifts” Music and Words

“Simple Gifts” Shaker Song

2X  ‘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 gained,
to bow and to bend we shan’t be ashamed,
to turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come ’round right.
