So Jesus and the twelve traveled all over Galilee
Not just preaching to the people, but teaching the people
And the crowds followed Him because He talked with authority
Like no one they had ever heard before

A Teacher came into the city
And Galilee was eager to hear
What the Teacher said, turned the people's heads
And set the city right on it's ear

He was holdin' class on a mountain
The class was intent on His word
The lesson on the mount was how to live and make it count
They listened and here's what they heard

Blessed are the poor in spirit
That's right, they will have the Kingdom of God
Blessed are they that mourn
Their shackles will be torn
And those who bear the cross of right, will have reward

"Blessed are the meek", said the Teacher
Yes, they will inherit the earth
Those who hunger for the right, will appease their appetite
Their cup will be filled, to quench their thirst

The Teacher was someone
Like no one that they'd seen before
The Teacher had somethin' about Him
They couldn't ignore

The merciful will know of God's mercy
The pure in heart will see the heart of God
Yeah, they will, and He went on to teach
The makers of the peace will be called the children of God

"Blessed are you", said the Teacher
When men persecute you and lie
Though it's hard to take, if it's for My sake
You will have reward by and by

The Teacher was someone
Like no one that they'd seen before
The Teacher had somethin' about Him
They couldn't ignore

The Teacher was a man called Jesus
He came to save us from sin
When you hear Him speak
And turn the other cheek
That's an apple for the Teacher of men
That's an apple for the Teacher of men
