Representative Text

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

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

Sowing seeds of gentle will,
Amid our daily life.

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.

Calming every angry storm,
That rages in the soul;

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