Refrain:

All   Rejoice and be glad

for you are the light of the world,

and great is your reward in heaven.

1    Blessed are the poor in spirit,  

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

2    Blessed are those who mourn,  

for they shall be comforted.

3    Blessed are the meek,  

for they shall inherit the earth.

4    Blessed are those who hunger

and thirst after righteousness,  

for they shall be satisfied.

5    Blessed are the merciful,  

for they shall obtain mercy.

6    Blessed are the pure in heart,  

for they shall see God.

7    Blessed are the peacemakers,  

for they shall be called children of God.

8    Blessed are those who suffer persecution

for righteousness’ sake,  

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5.3-10

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

All   Rejoice and be glad

for you are the light of the world,

and great is your reward in heaven.
