A Blessed Thanksgiving to One and All

‘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,

‘Til by turning, turning we come ’round right.

BONUS: A pair of a capella versions, courtesy of The Kings Singers and Cantus. And, of course, the beloved Copland. But that Krauss-Ma duet is pretty much perfect.

Happy Thanksgiving!
