Blessed are the poor in spirit

Matthew 5: 3-12

  1. Blessed are the poor in spirit;
    here is wealth beyond all telling.
    Blessed are they,
    the hungry ones;
    here is food for all their their needs.
  2. Bless'd are those who cry with sorrow;
    here is comfort sure.
    Bless'd are you if others hate you;
    heav'n is your reward.
