The Beatitudes (song)

HYMN

Amen! Truly I say to you:
Gather in my name, I am with you.

Amen! Truly I say to you:
Gather in my name, I am with you.

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

Blessed are the gentle,
they shall inherit the land.
 

Amen! Truly I say to you:
Gather in my name, I am with you.

Blessed are those who mourn,
they shall be consoled.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice,
the justice of God shall be theirs.

Amen! Truly I say to you:
Gather in my name, I am with you.

Blessed are the merciful,
mercy shall be shown to them.

Blessed are the pure of heart,
they shall behold their God.

Amen! Truly I say to you:
Gather in my name, I am with you.

 

Blessed are those who bring peace,
they shall be children of God.

Blessed are those who suffer in the cause of right,
the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

 

Amen! Truly I say to you:
Gather in my name, I am with you.
Gather in my name, I am with you.
