Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Simple Gifts - alt lyrics?
Hi, My grandmother gave me the same lyrics Yorkshire Yankee posted, with one additional verse:
‘Tis a gift to be caring, ‘tis a gift to be kind
‘Tis a gift to wait to hear another’s mind
That when we speak our feelings they may come true
Is a gift for me and a gift for you.

I don’t know where this verse came from, but it has been passed down through my Quaker family. I’ve never seen it anywhere on the internet.
