Antiphon:
Show us your ways, O Lord, teach us your paths.

1 Blest are the poor in spirit; for theirs is the kingdom of heav'n
Blest are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted.
Blest are the meek; for they shall inherit the earth. [Antiphon]

2 Blest are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled.
Blest are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. [Antiphon]

3 Blest are the pure in heart; for they shall see God.
Blest are the peacemakers; for they shall be called God's sons.
Blest are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake; the kingdom of heav'n is theirs. [Antiphon]
