I heard the voice of Love divine - Blessed are they that Mourn
(Charlotte Elliott/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Blessed are they that Mourn.

1. I heard the voice of Love divine,
  addressing man, to trouble born;
Saviour! what accents then were thine?
  "Blessed are thy that mourn."

2. Again it spoke – "Come unto me
  thou, with distress and labour worn,
rest and refreshment are for thee:
  Blessed are thy that mourn."

3. I heard a voice in truth's pure word,
  a saint, who sorrow's yoke had borne,
"Blessed is the man thou chastenest, Lord!"
  "Blessed are thy that mourn."

4. I heard an angel voice proclaim,
  yon victors bright, whom crowns adorn,
"Through tribulation great they came!"
  "Blessed are thy that mourn."

5. Why should I then for sufferings grieve,
  since sorrow leads to joy's bright bourne?
Let me indeed the words believe,
  "Blessed are thy that mourn."

Charlotte Elliott, Selections from the Poems of Charlotte Elliott, 172-173.
