Blessed are the Poor

Inspired by my brothers and sisters who were abandoned, raised in the orphanage, and though having nothing, became the richest of all.


Blessed are the poor for theirs is the kingdom of God
Blessed are the hungry for they shall be satisfied
Earth for the meek and mercy for merciful
Laughter for tears
Hatred and insult, scorned for the Son of Man
He's your reward
Blessed are the poor

Woe to the rich now receiving your comfort in full
Woe to the well-fed, you shall be hungry after all
Laughter to weeping, gloating to mourning
They spoke well of false prophets too
Yet for the pure heart, peace-making, hungry for what's right
He's your reward
Blessed are those having nothing yet possessing everything

Blessed are the poor
