Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

11673. Blessed Are The Peacemakers

1 Blessèd are the peacemakers,
The children of their God!
Working joy and kindliness
While here they onward plod.

Solo:
Be it ours to quell each word
Of anger and of strife.

All:
Sowing seeds of gentle will,
Amid our daily life.

Refrain:
Blessèd are the peacemakers,
The children of their God!
Working joy and kindliness,
While here they onward plod!
Blest are they! Blest are they!

2 Blessèd are the peacemakers,
The children of their God!
Breathing sweetest incense round,
Like daisies from the sod.

Solo:
Calming every angry storm,
That rages in the soul;

All:
Sowing seeds of gentle will,
Amid our daily life. [Refrain]
