Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

THE BEATITUDES

Blessed are the poor in spirit

Published in 8 hymnals

Full Text

Blessed are the poor in spirit:
for theirs is the kingdom of heav'n.
Blessed are they that mourn:
for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek:
for they they inherit the earth.
Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst for righteousness;
for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful:
for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart:
for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers:
for they shall be called God's children.
Blessed are they which are persecuted
for righteousness' sake.

Blessed are ye when men shall revile you and speak all manner of evil against you
falsely for my sake.
Rejoice and be exceeding glad,
your reward is in heav'n.
