Lord Jesus, teacher of righteousness;

GIVE US TRUE HAPPINESS AND EVERY BLESSING.

Bless the poor and humble in spirit;

MAKE THEM INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

Bless those who mourn for lost blessings;

BE THEIR COMFORT IN TIME OF TROUBLE.

Bless those who are meek and humble of heart;

LET THEM INHERIT WHAT GOD HAS PROMISED.

Bless those who hunger and thirst for what God requires;

AND FILL THEM WITH DIVINE WHOLENESS.

Bless those who are merciful toward others;

MAY GOD BE MERCIFUL TO THEM IN TURN.

Bless those who are pure in heart;

LET THEM SEE GOD IN THE LIGHT OF GLORY.

Bless those who make peace on earth;

AND CALL THEM THE CHILDREN OF GOD.

Bless those who are persecuted for being holy;

GIVE THEM POSSESSION OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

Bless those who are slandered and insulted for your sake;

MAKE THEM HAPPY AND GLAD, FOR THEIR REWARD IS GREAT IN THEIR HEAVENLY HOME.
