Acclamation: The Beatitudes

Here’s a responsive acclamation inspired by the Beatitudes.  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Beatitude Acclamation

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice,
for they will receive it in full.” Matthew 5:6

Wonderful is the God of Christ, who gathers the poor of the earth.
Glorious is our God, who wipes away the tears of sorrow.
Wonderful is the God of Christ, who gives inheritance to the meek.
Glorious is our God, who satisfies the hunger of the just.
Wonderful is the God of Christ, who gives mercy to the merciful.
Glorious is our God, who gives vision to the pure in heart.
Wonderful is the God of Christ, who adopts the peacemakers.
Glorious is our God, who lifts high the persecuted.
Wonderful is the God of Christ, who finds the lost.
Glorious is our God, who awakens the dead.
