O how blessed are the poor in spirit,
Theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
And how blessed are the sad and mournful,
They'll be consoled by God.
Blessed and happy we shall be.
Listen to the Master's word!
O how blessed are the meek and humble,
They will inherit the earth.
And how blessed those who hunger for goodness,
They all will feast with God.
O how blessed are the mercy givers,
Such mercy they will receive.
And how blessed are the pure in heart,
They surely will see God.
O how blessed are true peace-makers,
They will be known as God's children.
And how blessed those who suffer for justice,
They will be honored by God.
