Standing on a level space, he saw folks from every place.
Words were spoken, and were heard. Sick were healed, and troubled cured.
Poor of earth, you’re not disdained. You’ll inherit heaven’s reign.
Hungry now, you will be filled. Weeping eyes with laughter filled.
If your faith has met with hate, all you need to do is wait.
Days are coming, says the Lord. Heaven holds a great reward.
If you’re praised, you’d best beware. Time will come for you to share
Both the substance and that joy, that you hoarded and employed.
