Simple gifts he gave us of water, broken bread and wine
Simple gifts he gave us to lead us to his love divine
Simple tales he told us of sheep and coins and long lost sons
Simple tales he told us – a God who searches, seeks and runs.
A God who did not choose to stay in heaven far above the fray
A God who came and lived on earth, who came to show our sacred worth
Simple love he showed us on cross of wood, in tomb of stone
Simple love he showed us – a love to claim us as his own
A simple song we sing now – a song of love and joy and light
A simple song we sing now – we, once blind, now given sight.
A simple life we live now – a life of faith and hope and care
A simple life we live now – the life of Christ we live and share
