Jesus calls us onto His trial trail
To grow a faith that will not fail
For when we are tested
Our weakness is bested
By joy from the sorrow of His grail
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.Matthew 5:10-12 NIV
