Whoever fears the Lord

With reverence and respect;

Is blessed in ways abundant

When His statutes they won’t forget.

Happiness will fill their dwelling

When the wife is a fruitful vine,

And the children are like olive plants

With blessings pure and divine.

Blessed are the meek

Along with the merciful,

And blessed are the peacemakers

When with love their soul is full.

Blessed are the poor in spirit

Who have come to understand;

True humility before the Lord

Who have knelt so they can stand.

Blessed are those persecuted

For the sake of righteousness;

Who endure slander and all false accusations

They will be truly blessed.

God cannot be mocked

And has a reward for those in heaven;

Who are reviled and persecuted for His name

Who refuse to bow to leaven.

Blessed are the pure in heart

Who desire God’s holy ways;

Who are delivered from anger,  jealousy and hate

Where righteousness remains.

Blessed are those who love the Lord

And where a deep revelation takes place,

That we’re mere pilgrims on this earth

Who desire to see His face.
