Name-It-Claim-It


Christians, Let us claim our rights!

Claim our right to be poor,
for ours is the kingdom of God,
Our right to mourn,
for we shall be comforted.

Claim our right to be meek,
for we have a great inheritance,
Our right to hunger and thirst,
for we will be filled.

Claim our right to show mercy,
for we have been shown mercy,
Our right to be pure,
for we shall see God.

Claim our right to make peace,
for we are children of God,
Our right to be persecuted,
for ours is the kingdom of heaven.

Claim our right to be insulted,
Our right to be persecuted.
Claim our right to rejoice and to be glad,
for great is our reward in heaven!
