From the School Chaplain: Weekly Devotional - Simple Gifts

Marie Campione (lk)
From Father Matthews: This week I shared a beautiful Shaker Hymn written by Elder Joseph Brackett.  I have also attached a link in case you would like to hear it in song by Yo-Yo Ma and Alison Krauss
 


Simple Gifts
Traditional/Shaker
‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free
’tis the gift to come down where you 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.
‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free
’tis the gift to come down where you ought to be
And when we find ourselves in the place just right
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
