BLESSED are the humble souls that see

Their emptiness and poverty;

Treasures of grace to them are given,

And crowns of joy laid up in heaven.

Blessed are the men of broken heart

Who mourn for sin with inward smart;

The blood of Christ divinely flows,

A healing balm for all their woes.

Blessed are the souls who thirst for grace,

Hunger and thirst for righteousness;

They shall be well supplied, and fed

With living streams and living bread.

Blessed are the men of peaceful life

Who quench the glowing coals of strife;

They shall be called the heirs of bliss,

The sons of God, and God of peace.

Blessed are the faithful who partake

Of pain and shame for Jesus' sake;

Their souls shall triumph in the Lord:

Glory and joy are their reward.
