A Man Of Great Simplicity

by David Pekrul

Age Rating: 10 +

He wanted nothing from this life
Than simple love and peace,
But everyone was waging war,
As violence did increase.

A simple man with simple views,
A simple way of life,
He wished that all could live in peace,
But all he saw was strife.

A man of great simplicity,
A man of humble birth,
The angels came to worship him,
They knew what he was worth.


A man that understood our pain,
That understood our need,
They hung this man upon a cross,
And watched him die and bleed.

A man who was the Son of God,
Our Father and a friend,
Who took our sins upon himself,
To rescue and defend.

A man of great simplicity,
A man of humble birth,
The angels came to worship him,
They knew what he was worth.


He understood what we were like,
And why we lived in sin,
And all he asked was simple faith,
So he could live within.

So he could be our guiding light,
A haven in the storm,
So he could take our sinful ways,
And of our lives, reform.

A man of great simplicity,
A man of humble birth,
The angels came to worship him,
They knew what he was worth.


And now he sits on Heavenís throne,
And listens as we pray,
And welcomes us with open arms,
Then watches as we stray.

He tried to teach us right from wrong,
And show us how to live,
And even though we go astray,
He said he would forgive.

A man of great simplicity,
A man of humble birth,
The angels came to worship him,
They knew what he was worth.


Thereís never been a man like him,
There hasnít been one since,
The Counselor, the Mighty God,
Of peace, he was the Prince.

A man of great simplicity,
A man of humble birth,
The angels came to worship him,
They knew what he was worth.

David,

Indeed, one of your classics. It renders one speechless to comment on it, because no words can do it justice. Simply - I loved the sentiments, and the way you wrote it - with simple elegance.

I loved the repetition verse.

You have turned a divine story into an even greater one with these words. I agree with Jessica, I would not have put this together so beautifully as you did and I have to be the one to say that this would be a great bedtime song for my children.The actually writing couldn't have been better. I see no errors in punctuation or grammar. Fantastic write as usual.

This was really good I think that topic, for myself, might have been harder to put into words but you did it really nicely.
