"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 out delight

‘Till by turning, turning we
come round right."

"Simple Gifts"
by Elder Joseph Brackett, 1848
Alfred, Maine
