Hymn/Song Information

BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL




Blest is the man whose softening heart
Feels all another's pain;
To whom the supplicating eye
Is never raised in vain:


Whose breast responds with generous warmth,
A stranger's woe to feel;
Who weeps in pity o'er the wound
He wants the power to heal.


He spreads his kind supporting arms
To every child of grief:
His secret bounty largely flows,
And brings unasked relief.


To gentle offices of love
His feet are never slow;
He views, through mercy's melting eye,
A brother in a foe.


To him protection shall be shown;
And mercy, from above,
Descend on those who thus fulfil
The Christian law of lore.


He, from the bosom of his God,
Shall present peace receive —
And when he kneels before the throne,
His trembling soul shall live.


---Alternative verses---


Whose breast expands with generous warmth, 
A stranger's woe to feel; 
Who weeps in pity o'er the wound 
He wants the power to heal. 


He bears the Saviour's cheering word,  “My peace to him I give;” And when he kneels before the throne,  His trembling soul shall live.
