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

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]
