Poetic take on the Sermon on the Mount. At least, the Beatitudes.
Poem on the Peak
The poor in spirit, surely blessed,
Shall see the kingdom come.
The mourners shall be comforted.
The meek shall not be glum,
For they inherit earth, itself.
The hungry shall be filled.
The ones who thirst for righteousness
Have done just what God willed.
So blessed are the merciful,
For mercy they’ll obtain.
And blessed are the pure in heart
For they shall see God’s reign.
The one who’s known for making peace
Wherever he may go,
Shall be known as a child of God,
From Whom all blessings flow.
Ye shall be blessed when men revile
And persecute you now
For righteousness and Jesus’ sake.
Rejoice and smooth your brow.
For great rewards will wait for you
With prophets at the throne.
Look forward to the time when He
Will claim you as His own.
These things I know to be the truth
For so my Lord has told.
So share this Truth with everyone.
‘Til we’re called home, be bold!

Feel free to print, share or repost anything on this blog. I do ask that you let me know if you use one of my poems on your blog or at your church somehow. It might give me an idea of better ways to spread His words, which I am always looking to do. And of course, always keep the copyright symbol and my name with the poem so I continue to have the right to use them. You may not realize that if something is posted enough times without the copyright notice, I could lose the copyright and then someone else could conceivably file for a copyright and I would no longer be able to use my own poems! It has happened, so please make sure the (c) is always on the poem whenever you repost. Thanks!
