Blessed are the meek and those that hunger and thirst for righteousness..

The meek:

 

            In meekness we find power…

There is strength in my weakness that comes only from you. There is power in meekness that I have found in you.

Where else can I go? You know I’m weak. I know you’re strong. You say when I’m broken and can’t carry on—Carry on!

When all my strength is gone, you’re still holding on.

There is love for the lonely that only comes from you. There is peace and forgiveness that I have found in you. Where else can I go?

You are the way, you are the light. You are the voice calling me through the night.

You are holy and just, full of mercy and love. You are patient and kind. Your grace has opened my eyes. When all my strength is gone, you’re still holding on.

—Kutless, “Carry On”

 

Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness…

            The Word is our Lamp…

The flowers will fade in their beauty, but your word travels faithful and true.

My hands on the pulse I am listening, and the words come to life and they bloom.

Oh, your word is a lamp to my path. Oh, your word is a lamp to my path.

Let the power of your word dwell here richly, changing the way that I see.

Fill me with otherly wisdom, plant me deep like a tree by the stream.

Oh, your word is a lamp to my path. Oh, your word is a lamp to my path.

I don’t put my hope in my wishes. I hang on your promises true. Your word’s like a sword searching all of my heart, dividing the lies from the truth.

Oh, your word is a lamp to my path. Oh, your word is a lamp to my path.

—Charlie Hall, “Lamp”

 Between the Beatitudes

The first four Beatitudes transport us inward toward God. Our spiritual pride has been crucified, our mourning has been given to God, Christ shines in our meekness, and we are banqueting on the Word!

Jesus is our universe!

 

Just like the sunshine, you have been our light, leading us into beautiful places. We’ve walked through fire, but you’ve made us brighter, leading us into beautiful places.

Faithful Jesus, Healing Savior, Compass, Center, Bread of Life.

 God, you are here with us, constantly here with us. You are our everything, faithful and true.

 Just like the starlight, you shine in the black night, leading us into beautiful places. Just like the atmosphere, you’ve come to surround us here, leading us into beautiful places.

 Faithful Jesus, Cherished Treasure, Our Portion, Wisdom, God’s Great Light!

—Charlie Hall, “Constant”
