    Simple Gifts

    PART 1: (Mrs. Hergert and Mrs. Jaust)

    '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 gained,

    To bow and to bend we shan't be ashamed,

    To turn, turn will be our delight,

    (Till by) turning, turning we come 'round right.

    Ending: 'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free

    'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,

    Allelu, alleluia

     

    PART 2: (Ms. Davis and Mrs. Henry)

    '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 gained,

    Bow, bend, shan’t be ashamed,

    To turn, will be our delight,

    Turning, turning we come 'round right.

    Alleluia

    Allelu, allelu, alleluia

     

    Chanukah is Here

    Flicker little candles, flicker bright for Chanukah.

    Sevivon go spinning, round and round on Chanukah.

    Flicker little candles, all eight nights of Chanukah.

    Sevivon go spinning, Chanukah is here!

     

    Jingle Jive

    Dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh.  

    O’er the fields we go, laughing all the way.  

    Bells on bob-tail ring, making spirits bright.  

    What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.

     

    Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

    Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh!

    Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

    Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh!

     

    (The second time, do not sing the underlined words.)

     

    Ending: Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh!  Jingle all the way!
