Blest are they

Blest are they, the poor in spirit
Theirs is the kingdom of God.
Blest are they, full of sorrow
They shall be consoled.

Rejoice, and be glad!
Blessed are you, holy are you!
Rejoice, and be glad!
Yours is the Kingdom of God!

Blest are they, the lowly ones
They shall inherit the earth.
Blest are they, who hunger and thirst
They shall have their fill.

Blest are they, who show mercy
Mercy shall be theirs.
Blest are they, the pure of heart
They shall see God.

Blest are they, who seek peace
They are the children of God.
Blest are they, who suffer in faith
The glory of God is theirs.

Blest are you, who suffer hate
All because of Me.
Rejoice and be glad, yours is the kingdom
Shine for all to see.
