Simple Pleasures (Hart)


Simple Pleasures (Hart)

Solos to Sing, Submitted Music (1992-1997)

Sunrise, soft and still, golden streams of light

Falling from the cloudless sky to bring the end of night.

Glist’ning leaves, budding trees, a singing bird in flight

With all these wonders I am blessed to have the gift of sight.

 

Simple pleasures, simple joys, I’m given all of these.

Thankfulness then fills my heart and brings me to my knees.

 

Singing, clear and sweet, a newborn baby’s cry;

Laughter from a little child, a mother’s lullaby.

Falling leaves, a summer breeze as gentle as a tear;

My life is full, my spirit flies—how blessed I am to hear.

 

Simple pleasures, simple joys, I’m given all of these.

Thankfulness then fills my heart and brings me to my knees.

 

Knowledge, the search for truth, a testimony’s birth;

Answers whispered to my heart—how much a soul is worth .

Eternal life, an end to strife: the song my spirit sings.

As I pray I’m blessed to know the peace the gospel brings.

 

Simple pleasures, simple joys, I’m given all of these.

Thankfulness then fills my heart and brings me to my knees.
