A poem I wrote last year

The Sermon on the Mount, James Tissot

 

A People Blessed
A Meditation on Matthew 5:1-16

A people blessed the kingdom seeks
Disciples gather on the hill
To see their rabbi’s words and will
Illuminate their path and feet

He turns our world upside down
A people blessed the kingdom seeks
Not rich but poor, not strong but meek
are those who learn to wear the crown

The greatest sermon ever told
Are these the words our savior speaks
A people blessed the kingdom seeks
Fulfilling prophets’ words of old

Praise to the God of heaven’s peaks
And to the Son who went below
And when the Spirit overflow
A people blessed the kingdom seeks

  1. Thanks – beautiful. I know this type of poem has a name – do you know what it is? Where the line repeats itself at different locations in the stanzas?
