    Tis a gift.

    http://www.bu.edu/av/musiclibrary/FA...-Section_3.mp3


    'Tis a gift to be simple, 'tis a gift to be free
    'Tis a gift to come down where you want to be
    And when you have come down to the place just right
    It will be in the valley of love and delight!

    Chorus:
    When true simplicity is gained,
    To bow and to bend we will not be ashamed,
    To turn, to turn will be our delight,
    'Til by turning, turning we come 'round right.

    'Tis a gift to be gentle, 'tis a gift to be fair,
    'Tis a gift to wake and breathe the morning air.
    To walk every day in the path that we choose,
    'Tis a gift we pray, we may never lose.

    (Repeat Chorus)

    'Tis a gift to be knowing, 'tis a gift to be kind,
    'Tis a gift to wait and hear another's mind,
    That when we speak our feelings we might come out true,
    'Tis a gift for me and a gift for you.

    (Repeat Chorus)

    'Tis a gift to be loving, 'tis the best gift of all,
    Like a warm spring rain bringing beauty when it falls,
    And when we use this gift we may come to believe,
    It is better to give than it is to receive.

    Thanks JL,

    Now I know why I didn't get rid of my old sub-woofer when I got my new
    computer. Beautiful!

    Pretty tune, i was unaware of any lyrics or its history other than as a
    piece by Copeland until the elderly relative began singing along with it
    yesterday during the inauguration.

    She remembered the first verse and i googled the rest.

    You a UU? I a Jew! I think UUs are fabulous folks. Are you
    offended by UU jokes? I'm sending a joke-a-day to a friend of mine
    who is terminally ill. She (agnostic) likes the UU jokes best!

    Well, I care, but not too much, as long as you get the UU in the correct
    order.

    :-)

    It's one of those modom things (a palindrome, UU is spelled the same
    forwards or backwards).

    There are some things in common between Jews and UUs, and some things
    that are different that make them compatible. I've noticed that when
    Jews don't have a place to worship (remodel or new synogague), that they
    often worship in UU churches.

    ObJoke:

    [heard at a UU church camp from a 16 year old girl]

    Q: How many UUs at a church camp does it take to screw in a light bulb?
    A: None! UUs at a church camp screw in sleeping bags!
