Blest Are The Politicians

Blest are the politicians who listen to the people.
Blest are the politicians who walk with the poor.
Blest are the politicians who are a still, quiet voice in the maelstrom of public life.
Blest are the politicians who trade their influence for the common good.
Blest are the politicians who speak truth to power and love to the powerless.
Blest are the politicians who retain their integrity, however the polls, pundits and persuaders pressure them.
Blest are the politicians who look out for and nurture the righteous endeavours of the people.
Blest are the politicians who harness their nation to its sources of renewal.
