Beatitudes Song

for Kids Ministry

"After a semester of studying the Be-Attitudes for Kids, the older children in our program recited them during our closing program, and the younger ones sang a song that I wrote to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb. Some of it is tricky to fit in, but it worked, see lyrics and video below. 

Thanks for all of your great Bible curriculum!" 
~Bev Tunnell


Blessed are the poor in spirit, 
poor in spirit, poor in spirit,
Blessed are the poor in spirit, 
Theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn,
those who mourn, those who mourn,
Blessed are those who mourn,
They shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek ones,
the meek ones, the meek ones,
Blessed are the meek ones,
They shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst,
hunger and thirst for righteousness,
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst,
For they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful,
Merciful, merciful,
Blessed are the merciful,
They shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart,
pure in heart, pure in heart,
Blessed are the pure in heart,
For they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, 
peacemakers, peacemakers, 
Blessed are the peacemakers, 
They are children of God.

Blessed are the persecuted, 
Persecuted for righteousness,
Blessed are the persecuted, 
Theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
