The Kingdom of Heaven

$0.00$5.00

“The Sermon on the Mount” contains some of Jesus’ most beloved words, but there are surprisingly few songs that take up these themes. As some settings of “The Beatitudes” have fallen into disuse it seemed the time was ripe for a new one. The verses are nearly verbatim scripture and the chorus is exceedingly easy to learn.

1. Blessed are the humble of spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are the ones who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Let them rejoice in God!

For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.
For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.

2. Blessed are the gentle of heart,
for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are the ones who hunger and thirst for God,
they will be satisfied. [CHORUS]

3. Blessed are the ones who show mercy,
for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see their God.
Let them rejoice in God! [CHORUS]

4. Blessed are the ones who seek peace,
for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are the ones who suffer for doing good.
Let them rejoice in God! [CHORUS]

5. Blessed are the ones who are cursed–
cursed for the cause of their God.
Rejoice and be glad, you saints, for your reward is great.
Let us rejoice in God! [CHORUS]
