Remember your servants, Lord, when you come into your kingly power.

Blessed are the poor in spirit;

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn;

for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek;

for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness;

for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful;

for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the peacemakers;

for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake;

for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when the world reviles you and persecutes you;

and utters all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake.

Rejoice and be exceeding glad;

for great is your reward in heaven.

Remember your servants, Lord, when you come in your kingly power.
