Text
Blessed are the poor in spirit.
Blessed are the sorrowful.
Blessed are the meek and lowly.
Blest are they who hunger for the right.
Blessed are the merciful.
Blessed are the pure in heart.
Blessed are the peacemakers.
Blessed are they who are falsely accused.
Blessed are the poor in spirit, theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are the sorrowful. They shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek and lowly. They shall inherit the earth.
Blest are they who hunger for the right. They shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful. They shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart. They shall se God.
Blessed are the peacemakers. They shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they who are falsely accused. Theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

-Matthew 5:3-10

Description
This lovely setting of the Beatitudes may be sung by any unison or two-part choir, and will appeal especially to youth (and the young at heart!). The graceful melody has a natural, satisfying shape which makes it both easy and fun to sing. Most effective when accompanied on piano.
