Sermon On The Mount

by Tabitha N. Munyoki

Our souls are starved
spirits poverty stricken
Favoured are we,
Who desire to be filled by the helper

Our conscious alive, yet some desire it's death
Sorrowful of our sinful nature
Favoured are we,
The comforter will accompany us

Meekness is our daily bread
Submitted to His authority
Favoured are we
We will rule with Him

Committed to this life-long journey
Daily mercies we pray
Favoured are we
For our hunger will be filled

We wear empathy
In a cruel world
Favoured are we,
For we shall receive Mercy for mercy

Once Condemned 
Grace saved us, Our debt paid on a cross
Favoured are we,
For we will sit in His Holy presence

Daily we seek peace
Renewal of mind, souls alight, reconciled
Favoured are we,
For we will be called sons of God

Our ways contrary to the world
Persecution is bound to come
Favoured are we,
Affirmed in our heritage in the Son.
