Tuesday Tunes: Audrey Assad – “Blessed Are The Ones”

I’ve been mulling over this song today. Audrey Assad is an inspiration to me. She shines with the beauty of Jesus. Thank you Audrey for being so brave and singing out the truth for us all to hear. More of her story here.

Lyrics:

“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 have sown

Blessed are the ones
Oh blessed are the ones
Blessed are the hungry ones

Lets 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

When our well is running dry
And when we raise our glasses high
And we’re shining on 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 have sown

So blessed are the ones
Oh, blessed are the ones
Blessed are the thirsty ones

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

So further up and further in we got no place else to go
And when all we have is what we need
It’s joy that we will sow

Blessed are the ones
Oh, blessed are the ones
Blessed are the hungry ones

We are blessed”
