The Beatitudes

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are the meek,
For they shall possess the earth.
Blessed are they who mourn for justice,
For they shall be consoled.
Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for justice,
For they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the clean of heart,
For they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called the Children of God.
Blessed are they who suffer persecution
For justice's sake,
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
