Hymn Text

Jesus went up on the mountain
Students gath’ring all around.
As they waited for His wisdom, 
Jesus began to expound:

Blessed are the poor in spirit; 
Theirs is the kingdom of Him
Who blesses the ones who mourn by 
Comforting when life is grim.

Blessed are the gentle spirits; 
They shall inherit the earth—
Not those warring, errant creatures, 
Contesting their spirit's dearth.

Hungry? Thirsty? What will fill you? 
Only God's own righteousness!
He will satisfy the needy 
Who have hoped in God to trust.

Blessed are the kind and gracious; 
God’s own mercy they will laud.
Blessed are those who wage peace for 
They are called the Sons of God.

Persecuted for righteousness? 
Heaven is given to you!
Insults, lies, and accusations? 
Trust in God to see you through.

Rejoice, Friends, and be delighted; 
Your reward in heav’n is great!
This is how life treated prophets 
Who with you will pass God’s gate.
