H Hung'ring for righteousness, I am content,
A Affronted by foes, reward put in place.
P Peacemaker mid conflict, a child of God,
P Pure in heart, I shall see Him face to face.
I Inheriting the earth when meekness rules,
N Needy in spirit, Jesus gives more grace.
E Eased in my mourning, I comfort others.
S Seeking mercy, mercy I must embrace;
S Sharing salt and light, seasoning my world.
