You are Blessed

You are blessed

 

Strength for the weak, the earth to the meek

Comfort to all those who mourn

The hungry are filled, the troubled heart stilled

The eyes of the pure shall adore

Rejoice and be glad, your reward Is at hand

The abundance of Heaven equips us to stand

 

Run to Him weary, burdened, distressed

The one who returns shall be given the best

Now our sins are as far as the east from the west

For all who believe they are blessed

Be salt and be light, bring peace in the fight

Let insults be hope for reward

Let good deeds be seen, rejoice in between

The Kingdom is ours says the Lord

Rejoice and be glad, your reward is at hand

The abundance of Heaven equips us to stand

We’ll run to Him weary, burdened, distressed.

At one with him who has given the best

Now our sins are as far as the east from the west

For us who believe we are blessed
