Blessed

Blessed are the poor in spirit
Theirs, theirs in the Kingdom
Blessed are those who mourn
For God will comfort them
Blessed are the humble people
For they will inherit the earth
Blessed are those who hunger
Thirst for righteousness
They will be filled

Blessed are the merciful
For they will be shown mercy
Blessed are the pure in heart
For they will see their God
Blessed are the peacemakers
For they will be His children
Blessed are the persecuted
Due to righteousness
Theirs is the Kingdom

For these are the words that I heard Him say
Sat on a hill, He taught that day
Of blessings that His Kingdom brings
When lives reflect the glory of the King
