The First Beautitude

"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for their's is the kingdom of heaven."—Matthew 5:3.

No comfort and no rest relieve the proud,By worldly care and competition bowed,But to the poor in spirit comes the joyOf humble hearts reserved for Love's employ.

As Mary bathed in tears the Master's feetAnd found redemption in his pardon sweet,So may the truly penitent achieveSelf-reformation, and no longer grieve.
