Blessed Are the People

Trumpet intro

Blessed are the people who understand the soul
Is an empty vessel. Only God can make it whole.
They shall have the kingdom and the key to heaven's door.
All of heaven's glory shall be theirs forever more.

And blessed are the people who mourn because they know
The distance between heaven and the earth here below.
They shall know the comfort and the warmth of the love
That only comes from Jesus and our Father up above.

Blessed are the people, the humble and the meek.
They shall find the power and the blessings that they seek.

And blessed are the people with a hunger deep inside
For God's eternal justice. They will be satisfied.
Blessed are the people who know how to forgive.
They will know a lifetime that is a joy to live.


Blessed are the ones who have their eyes on His face.
They know He is with them any time and any place.

And blessed are the people who hunger for peace.
They are God's children who have no enemies.
Blessed are the people who bear the pain and shame
Of those who don't know Jesus and the power of His name.

His love for His people will always be the same.
