Blessed Journey

God’s blessings are a journey
From darkness to light and new life
As our soul travels earthly pathways
Ever searching for fullness in Christ

Poor in spirit – in need of a Savior
Heaven’s Kingdom beckons us home
And soon the cries of our mourning
Bring comfort from Christ alone

In meekness we see our need clearly
His plan for our place here on Earth
We hunger and thirst for righteousness
And Living Water quenches our thirst

Our merciful hearts have seen trials
And receive from His mercy above
Pure in heart from the Refiner’s fire
We see God in His mercy and love

Peace makers thus molded and formed
By God’s hand we walk as His own
Persecuted for righteousness sake
Heaven’s Kingdom forever our home

Blessed are we each step of the journey
With blessings from God’s mighty hand
He takes us from paupers to princes
‘Till in His mighty Name we stand

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
   for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
   for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
   for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
   for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
   for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
   for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
   for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
   for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”

– Matthew 5:3-10
