“Simple Pleasures,” New Era, Nov. 1995, 10–11In Tune:Simple PleasuresWords and music by Linda E. Hart1. Sunrise, soft and still, golden streams of lightFalling 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.Chorus2. 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.Chorus3. 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.ChorusChorusSimple pleasures, simple joys,I’m given all of these.Thankfulness then fills my heartand brings me to my knees.Copyright © 1995 by Linda E.
