Wonderful is the God of Christ,
who gathers the poor of the earth.
    Glorious is our God,
    who wipes away the tears of sorrow.
Wonderful is the God of Christ,
who gives inheritance to the meek.
    Glorious is our God,
    who satisfies the hunger of the just.
Wonderful is the God of Christ,
who gives mercy to the merciful.
    Glorious is our God,
    who gives vision to the pure in heart.
Wonderful is the God of Christ,
who adopts the peacemakers.
    Glorious is our God,
    who lifts high the persecuted.
Wonderful is the God of Christ,
who finds the lost.
    Glorious is our God,
    who awakens the dead.

Bruce Prewer, died September 11, 2018, Australian minister

Matthew 5:3-12

 Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
 Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
 Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
 Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
 Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
 Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
 Blessed are those who are persecuted
    because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you
   and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven,
   for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
