Inspired by the witness and example of his good friend Barbara Colliander and her work with the poor, David Haas virtually blazed through the composing of this GIA best-seller. David believes that the success of this song is due largely in part to the fact that it "came from a place of tremendous and total gratitude for the 'ambassadors of God' at the Dorothy Day Center [in St. Paul, MN] and for the witness and example of [his] good friend, Barbara." In November of 2014 "Blest Are They" celebrates its 30th anniversary.

One of the very biggest hits in the GIA catalog!

    Excellent piece for All Saints Sunday, or whenever the Beatitudes happens to be the Gospel Lesson. Not very difficult SAB Anthem to learn. Can be put together in a week or so.

    This song is great for a youth choir that doesn't have a lot of experience or a choir that needs a new song. It has a valuble lesson.

    Blest Are They is a great song. The following piano part is soothing. Great for a 2 or 3 part church choir.
