1. Blest are they, the poor in spirit; theirs is the kingdom of God. Blest are they, full of sorrow; they shall be consoled. 

Refrain: Rejoice, and be glad! Blessed are you, holy are you! Rejoice and be glad! Yours is the kingdom of God! 

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

3. Blest are they, who show mercy; mercy shall be theirs. Blest are they, the pure of heart; they shall see God! 

4. 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. 

5. Blest are you, who suffer hate, all because of me. Rejoice and be glad, yours is the kingdom of God; shine for all to see.
