Blessed Are They...

Blessed Are They…


Blessed are the poor in spirit. 

Theirs is God’s kingdom.

Many blessings from God…

They shall receive them!


Blessed are they who mourn.

 They shall be comforted.

In the loving arms of Jesus,

they shall be well rested!


Blessed are the meek.

 They shall inherit the earth.

They shall receive from Jesus.

 A “brand new birth!”


Blessed are they who hunger for righteousness. 

They shall be filled.

A desire to know more of God,

 has been instilled!


Blessed are the merciful.  God’s mercy

 they shall obtain.

As they’re an expression of Jesus’

 wonderful name!


Blessed are they with a pure heart. 

 They shall see God!

Though many in this world,

may think they’re “odd.”


Blessed are those who are persecuted

 for God’s kingdom.

They share their testimony for Christ,

 to those who receive them!


Blessed are you when others persecute you

 and accuse you falsely.

Rejoice in the power of God!

 He loves you most assuredly!


Rejoice that heaven shall one day

 be your reward!

So YOU can rule and reign

 with Jesus our lord!


Blessed are we who serve Christ.

 The anointed one!

Blessed are God the father.

 The Holy Spirit.   And the Son!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
