Regular price $45.00 Sale

SATB choir, Oboe, Trumpet and Strings, c.6'00

Shaker dance song by Elder Joseph Brackett, composed at Alfred, Maine in 1848

Complete words to the original song:                  

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.
