Jewel – Simple Gifts lyrics

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where you ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
Will 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

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'Tis gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where you ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
Will 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
Till by turning, turning we come round right

    My meaning to this is likely that one should be humble and accept for what they have rather than trying to reach for something "greater" or "better" to fulfill that possession or self worth, and when one accepts that as their gift then they'll also receive the gift to be free from greed and the need to feel greater than what one should be. When they stay true and let go from the things that cause them to hunger for more, they'll love for what they already have.
