This is a praise hymn in 4-part chorale style based on the American Traditional Shaker melody with the text an adaptation of Psalm 145. The Shaker Melody is often attributed to "Anonymous" but was probably written by Elder Joseph Brackett Jr. (1797-1882) in 1848. It has had several names including "Simple Gifts" and the "Tis The Gift to be Simple", "Lord of the Dance" and "Shaker Dance Song."
