Blessed are the poor. The kingdom is theirs. Alive in the promise
to be dead to the world.
Blessed are the meek. In the eye of the Father.
The Word at Your right hand.
Spirit of truth.

Unwavering is the voice. Unwavering is Your hand.

Unwavering is the heart that bled for the sons of man.

Unwavering is Your will. Unwavering is Your plan.

The fount of salvation. On which we will stand.

Blessed are the righteous. On bended knee. Found in this
freedom. Committed to You.
Blessed are those who see. The heights of glory.
Found in the valley. Suffering for You.
Send us out to be Your hands and feet...

-"unwavering" by Matt Maher, sung by Bethany Dillon

And opening His mouth, He taught them, saying,
Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of the heavens.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of the heavens.
-Matthew 5:2-10

I really love listening to the lullabye album "sing over me", which is where the song above is taken from. I purchased the cd to play for Demi-Sky at bedtime, and now it is on my ipod- so soothing and such a blessing to listen to. Two songs are my absolute favorites, the above is one, and one song makes me cry. Really, a great cd, you won't be sorry if you run out and buy it.

"unwavering" always brings to my mind The sermon on the mount. Thoughts of mercy; found and given and sorrow; endured and comforted envelope me as I ponder this song and these verses. I love the peace of knowing that the blessing is found simply by dwelling with God, and that this is all I need-and really, when I strip away all the excess, this is all I want.
