David Haas – Blest Are They Lyrics

1. Blest are they, the poor in spirit; theirs is the

kingdom of God. Blest are they, full of sorrow; they

shall be consoled.

Refrain: Rejoice, and be glad! Blessed are you, holy are

you! Rejoice and be glad! Yours is the kingdom of God!

2. Blest are they, the lowly ones: they shall inherit the

earth. Blest are they, who hunger and thirst; they shall

have their fill.

3. Blest are they, who show mercy; mercy shall be theirs.

Blest are they, the pure of heart; they shall see God!

4. Blest are they, who seek peace; they are the children

of God. Blest are they who suffer in faith; the glory of

God is theirs.

5. Blest are you, who suffer hate, all because of me.

Rejoice and be glad, yours is the kingdom of God; shine

for all to see.
