Blessed are the poor in spirit;
for theirs is the kingdom of heav'n.
Blessed are those who mourn;
for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek;
for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness;
for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful;
for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart;
for they shall see God
Blessed are the peacemakers;
for they shall be called children of God.
Blessed are those who suffer persecution for righteousness' sake;
for theirs is the kingdom,
the kingdom of heav'n.
