Blessed Be

I was listening to the radio a few days ago and heard a lovely song called, "Blessed Be" by Jason Gray. (I was listening to WBGL 91.7, Champaign, IL) The lyrics really cried out to me, especially with the current uncertainty and additional pain I've recently been going thru. Not only are the lyrics beautiful (the song is based on "the Beatitudes") but the tune is wonderful, too. Here are the lyrics:

Blessed Be
Jason Gray
All the Lovely Losers

All the lovely losers
Never thought you’d hear your name
Always on the outside
Empty at the wishing well
But time will tell

Blessed Be
The ones who know that they are weak
They shall see
The Kingdom come to the broken ones
Blessed be

Like you’re drinking from a salt sea
But one day you’ll be satisfied
For the taste of mercy
Aching just to have your fill
One day you will

Not for the strong, the beautiful, the brave
Not for the ones who think they’ve got it made
It’s for the poor, the broken and the meek
It’s for the ones who look a lot like you and me

Chorus: (2x’s)

Blessed Be
All the lovely losers
