Statler Brothers – The Teacher Lyrics

A teacher came into the city
And galilee was eager to hear
What the teacher said turned the peoples 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 a 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 that 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 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…
