Blessed are those who know their need for theirs is the grace of heaven.
Blessed are those who weep for their tears will be wiped away.
Blessed are the humble for they are close to the sacred earth.
Blessed are those who hunger for earth's oneness for they will be satisfied.
Blessed are the forgiving for they are free.
Blessed are the clear in heart for they see the Living Presence.
Blessed are the peacemakers for they are born of God.
