God Bless the Poor

Intro: A9-A
A9
God bless the poor
Bless them with the treasure that the rich take for granted
D9 A D
Bless them with true prosperity
A D A
To have all that they need, enough and then some more to share
E E/D E/C# E/B
And wisdom to enjoy the priceless blessings flowing everywhere
A
For free

God bless the rich
Bless them with the treasure that their money cannot buy
Bless them with generosity to realize we can only save the things we give away
And the only wealth worth having is the joy of having family
For free

God bless the wounded
The migrant and the refugee who see just to survive
Bless them with hospitality to keep their hope alive just one more day
through strangers who in kindness open hands and doors
and borders until all are safe
And free

God bless us all
Every child from here to Africa and in between
Bless us with gratitude to savor every breath, the gift of every present moment
And dance with all our strength within your rhythm and your music
To be free
