A uniquely American setting, perfect for Earth Day or Thanksgiving. Good arrangement for a congregation, choir, or small group of soloists. Often used with children's choirs because the text is simple and approachable. Three and a half verses, with the last half verse slower.

Lyrics:
'Tis a gift to be simple, 'tis a gift to be free,
'tis a gift to come down where we ought to be,
and when we find ourselves in the place just right,
it will 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,
'til by turning, turning we come 'round right.
