Blessed Are the Ones

This song is by Audrey Assad and appears on the album Heart (2012).

We're tossing pennies in the well, empty pockets all turned out
Happy shining blessed are the ones who hunger
When our poverty is plain, I'll try to burn it in my brain
Trace a line around your face to paint a picture

So further up and further in we have nowhere else to go
As we plant the seeds of toil and tears, it's beauty we will sow
Blessed are the ones, Oh blessed are the ones
Blessed are the hungry ones

Let's build a house with turned out doors, so we can share what love affords
Pour ourselves out like a wine that we've been saving
So, when our well is running dry, and when we raise our glasses high
Happy, shining are the faces of the thirsty

So further up and further in we have nowhere else to go
But you give us seeds of toil and tears, it's beauty we will sow
And blessed are the ones, Oh, blessed are the ones
Blessed are the thirsty ones

Love is all, love is all, love is all, yeah, love is all, love is all we need

So further up and further in we have no place else to go
And when all we have is what we need, its joy that we will sow
Blessed are the ones, Oh, blessed are the ones,
Blessed are the hungry ones. We are blessed, yeah
