11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Matthew 5:11-12 KJV
These days when you say Jesus best beware,
The chance is good you’ll meet a wall of hate.
Consider yourself blessed when they just stare,
For there are places killing us is great.
Just tell them Christ arose alive from death
And you’ll be shouted down and shown the door.
In some parts of the world give Christ your breath
And they will roll your head along the floor.
Rejoice when you are persecuted here,
For so the prophets suffered this and worse.
Count it a blessing when your pain’s severe,
For your reward in heaven’s worth their curse.
When persecution comes be glad in Christ
He’ll be there with you when you’re sacrificed.
