Lyr. Add: WILLOW TREE
Lebanon, ca. 1843

I will bow and be simple,
I will bow and be free,
I will bow and be humble
Yes, bow like the willow tree.

I will bow this is a token,
I will wear the easy yoke,
I will bow and be broken,
I will fall upon the rock.

Gift Song No. 19, from "Mother's Work." That term applies to a "period of renewed spiritual dedication that began in 1837 and tapered away about ten years later.
With musical score, pp. 339-340, Daniel W. Patterson, 1979, "The Shaker Spiritual, Princeton Univ. (Reprint, Dover Books).

Tune different, but similarities with "Simple Gifts."
