Lyrics
Blessed are the poor in spirit Those who mourn because of sin. They are blessed for they are the meek And desire righteousness more than anything, They are the merciful, They are the pure in heart, They are the peacemakers, And when the persecution starts, They are blessed and beyond any doubt, Theirs is the Kingdom, Theirs is the Kingdom, Theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Now Jesus didn't come to this world to criticize men, He didn't come to start any wars, His way is the way of the gentle redeemer King Teaching the ways of His Kingdom. And all who would follow must desire more than anything To walk in His footsteps Even if it costs them everything, To be empted of self, To be filled with each word He brings, The teachind and ways of His Kingdom, Listen to Him teaching He said; Blessed are the poor in spirit Those who mourn because of sin. They are blessed for they are the meek And desire righteousness more than anything, They are the merciful, They are the pure in heart, They are the peacemakers, And when the persecution starts, They are blessed and beyond any doubt, Theirs is the Kingdom, Theirs is the Kingdom, Theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. And HIs own will know, And follow when He calls them home, To His heavenly kingdom, To the place He said would be their own, On earth they are strangers, In the world percecuted and disowned, They pray and confess to Him Their desperate need of Him. Blessed are the poor in spirit Those who mourn because of sin. They are blessed for they are the meek And desire righteousness more than anything, They are the merciful, They are the pure in heart, They are the peacemakers, And when the persecution starts, They are blessed and beyond any doubt, Theirs is the Kingdom, Theirs is the Kingdom, Theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.
