“Simple Gifts” is a Shaker song written and composed in 1848 by Elder Joseph Brackett.
It has endured many inaccurate descriptions. Though often classified as an anonymous Shaker hymn or as a work song, it is better classified as a dance song.

The tune was written by Joseph Brackett (1797–1882) in 1848.[2] Brackett, a lifelong resident of Maine, first joined the Shakers at Gorham, Maine, when his father’s farm helped to form the nucleus of a new Shaker settlement.[3]

The song was largely unknown outside Shaker communities until Aaron Copland used its melody for the score of Martha Graham’s ballet Appalachian Spring (Shakers once worshipped on Holy Mount, in the Appalachians), first performed in 1944. Copland used “Simple Gifts” a second time in 1950 in his first set of Old American Songs for voice and piano, which was later orchestrated. Many people thought that the tune of “Simple Gifts” was a traditional Celtic one but both the music and original lyrics are actually the compositions of Brackett. “Simple Gifts” has been adapted or arranged many times since by folksingers and composers.[4]
Lyrics[edit]
“Simple Gifts” was written by Elder Joseph while he was at the Shaker community in Alfred, Maine. These are the lyrics to his one-verse song:
‘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.[5]
Several Shaker manuscripts indicate that this is a “Dancing Song” or a “Quick Dance.” “Turning” is a common theme in Christian theology, but the references to “turning” in the last two lines have also been identified as dance instructions.[1] When the traditional dance is performed properly, each dancer ends up where he or she began, “come ’round right.”

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS best popular favorite Lent Christian hymn music songs

THE OLD RUGGED CROSS Best popular favorite Lent Christian hymn music songs sung by Charles Szabo (c) 2016 Written 1912
Text by George Bennard Meter 6.6.8.6.6.8.9.9.9.9
Melody by George Bennard Published 1915
“The Old Rugged Cross” is a popular hymn written in 1912 by evangelist and song-leader George Bennard (1873–1958).

George Bennard was a native of Youngstown, Ohio, but was reared in Iowa. After his conversion in a Salvation Army meeting, he and his wife became brigade leaders before leaving the organization for the Methodist Church.[1] As a Methodist evangelist, Bennard wrote the first verse of “The Old Rugged Cross” in Albion, Michigan, in the fall of 1912[a] as a response to ridicule that he had received at a revival meeting.[3] Bennard traveled with Ed E. Mieras from Chicago to Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin where they held evangelistic meetings at the Friends Church from December 29, 1912 to January 12, 1913. During the meetings Rev. George Bennard finished “The Old Rugged Cross” and on the last night of the meeting Bennard and Mieras performed it as a duet before a full house with Pearl Torstensen Berg, organist for the meeting, as accompanist.[4] Charles H. Gabriel, a well-known gospel-song composer helped Bennard with the harmonies.[5] The completed version was then performed on June 7, 1913, by a choir of five, accompanied by a guitar[6] in Pokagon, Michigan, at the First Methodist Episcopal Church of Pokagon. Published in 1915, the song was popularized during Billy Sunday evangelistic campaigns by two members of his campaign staff, Homer Rodeheaver (who bought rights to the song for $50 or $500[3]) and Virginia Asher, who were perhaps also the first to record it in 1921. The Old Rugged Cross uses a sentimental popular song form with a verse/chorus pattern in 6
8 time, and it speaks of the writer’s Christian experience rather than his adoration of God. Bennard retired to Reed City, Michigan, and the town maintains a museum dedicated to his life and ministry.[7] A memorial has also been created in Youngstown at Lake Park Cemetery.[8] A plaque commenorating the first performance of the song stands in front of the Friend’s Church in Sturgeon Bay, WI.

“The Old Rugged Cross” has been a country gospel favourite ever since it became the title song of Ernest Tubb’s 1952 gospel album; it has been performed by some of the twentieth century’s most important recording artists, including Al Green, Andy Griffith, Anne Murray, Brad Paisley, Chet Atkins, John Berry, Floyd Cramer, George Jones, Eddy Arnold, Jim Reeves, Johnny Cash and June Carter, Kevin Max, Mahalia Jackson, Merle Haggard, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Ray Price, Ricky Van Shelton, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans,[9] The Oak Ridge Boys, The Statler Brothers, Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Alan Jackson, George Beverly Shea and John Prine on the 2007 CD “Standard Songs for Average People” with Mac Wiseman. British television dramatist Dennis Potter used the gospel song prominently in several of his plays, most notably Pennies from Heaven (1978); and the song also played a major part in “Gridlock” (2007), an episode of the long-running sci-fi drama series Doctor Who. In early 2009, the song was covered by Ronnie Milsap on his gospel album Then Sings My Soul.

In his art parody volume Art Afterpieces, Ward Kimball created a variation on the painting Expulsion from Paradise by the 15th-century artist Giovanni di Paolo, which shows God pointing at a large circle below him. Kimball centered the record label of The Old Rugged Cross, as published by Victor, on the circle in the picture, complete with the trademark of Nipper (His Master’s Voice). “The Old Rugged Cross” was one of a number of Christian hymns co-opted by the Ku Klux Klan and sung at cross burnings.[10]

FAVORITE OLD TIME CHRISTIAN BLUEGRASS GOSPEL MUSIC – PSALM 98:4-5



Views:757751|Rating:4.33|View Time:43:59Minutes|Likes:889|Dislikes:138
All our Christian music videos can be found at (scroll down to bottom of playlist past our radio shows). Larry Wessels, director of Christian Answers of Austin, Texas/ Christian Debater (YouTube channel: CANSWERSTV at see websites: & was formerly director of Dayspring Evangelism back during most of the 1980s and early 1990s before starting “Christian Answers” in 1994. During Larry’s more than quarter of a century of Christian ministry and television outreach, this “Bluegrass” video is the only music video that he has ever produced until 2010 when his daughter Marlena Wessels recorded her first Christian song called “Jesus Is” (to see her music video please type “MARLENA WESSELS” in the YOUTUBE search box). Marlena’s song still plays on local Christian radio stations in Austin, Texas.

The years have passed but the music never gets old. Hear members of the Central Texas Bluegrass Association as they employ their guitars, banjos, big bass, fiddles, and harmonicas to play favorite Christian bluegrass Gospel songs. Psalm 98:4-5 says, “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. Sing unto the Lord with the harp: with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.” Gospel songs recorded here include: “Old Country Church, “I’m Using My Bible For a Road Map,” “Willie Roy,” “Back to the Cross,” “A Few More …,” Where the Soul of Man Never Dies,” “This World is Not My Home,” “I Can Almost Hear My Mother,” “I’ll Fly Away,” I Saw the Light,” and “Somebody Touched Me.”

Unlike mainstream country music, bluegrass is traditionally played on acoustic stringed instruments. The fiddle, five-string banjo, guitar, mandolin, and upright bass (string bass) are often joined by the resonator guitar (also referred to as a Dobro®) and harmonica. This instrumentation originated in rural dance bands and is the basis on which the earliest bluegrass bands were formed.

The guitar is now most commonly played with a style referred to as flatpicking, unlike the style of seminal bluegrass guitarist Lester Flatt, who used a thumb and finger pick. Banjo players often use the three-finger picking style made popular by Earl Scruggs. Fiddlers will frequently play in thirds and fifths, producing a sound that is characteristic to the bluegrass style. The bassist will almost always play pizzicato, occasionally adopting the “slap-style” to accentuate the beat. A bluegrass bass line is generally a rhythmic alternation between the tonic and dominant of each chord, with occasional walking bass excursions.

Instrumentation has been an ongoing topic of debate. Traditional bluegrass performers believe the “correct” instrumentation is that used by Bill Monroe’s band, the Blue Grass Boys (mandolin, played by Monroe, fiddle, guitar, banjo and bass). Departures from the traditional instrumentation have included accordion, harmonica, piano, autoharp, drums, electric guitar, and electric versions of other common bluegrass instruments, resulting in what has been referred to as “newgrass.”

Aside from specific instrumentation, a distinguishing characteristic of bluegrass is vocal harmony featuring two, three, or four parts, often with a dissonant or modal sound in the highest voice (see modal frame), a style described as the “high, lonesome sound.” Commonly, the ordering and layering of vocal harmony is called the ‘stack’. A standard stack has a baritone voice at the bottom, the lead in the middle (singing the main melody) and a tenor at the top; although stacks can be altered, especially where a female voice is included. Alison Krauss and Union Station provide a good example of a different harmony stack with a baritone and tenor with a high lead, an octave above the standard melody line, sung by the female vocalist.

“Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in His sanctuary: praise Him in the firmament of His power. Praise Him for His mighty acts: praise Him according to His excellent greatness. Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet: praise Him with the psaltery & harp. Praise Him with the timbrel & dance: praise Him with stringed instruments & organs. Praise Him upon the loud cymbals: praise Him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.” (Psalm 150)
