All those nights on the front porch watching the stars
He’d point out Orion, Big Dipper and Mars
Safe in Dad’s arms, now all gone away
Like fading light into sweet yesterday

I watched their hair shine dancing under the moon
Never dreamed they would grow up quite so soon
But childhood is such a brief fleeting thing
With each heartache and joy that children bring

Simple Grace, oh, simple grace
Walk hand in hand, dance in the sand face to face
Holiness, here and now
Trusting in why and how
Oh, simple grace
Oh, simple grace

I heard all his bad jokes again and again
Never thought I would miss them looking back then
I’d pay any price to hear my brother’s voice
Cherish the time while there still was a choice.


Ordinary things rise and take wings, becoming memories
Keep and embrace visitations by grace, precious melodies
Presence of mind in search of a sign, sacred simplicity
Familiar and plain reveals a new frame, whispered divinity
