A good gift re-given

I can’t improve on last year’s gift for Christmas – and for all seasons – the 19th-century American Shaker hymn “Give Good Gifts,” as sung by The Rose Ensemble. Here’s an encore:

If you’d like to sing along, here are the lyrics:

Give good gifts, one to another,
Peace, joy and comfort, gladly bestow;
Harbor no ill ’gainst sister or brother,
Smoothe life’s journey as you onward go

Broad as the sunshine, free as the showers,
So shed an influence blessing to prove;
Give for the noblest of efforts your powers,
Blest and be blest, is the law of love.
