The Earth And All That Dwell Therein


The earth, and all that dwell therein,
With all its wealth untold,
Belongs to God, who founded it
Upon the seas of old.

O who shall stand before the Lord
On Zion’s holy hill?
The clean of hand, the pure of heart,
The just who do God’s will.

O everlasting doors, give way,
Lift up your heads, O gates!
For now, behold, to enter in
The King of Glory waits.

Who is this glorious King that comes
To sit upon the throne?
The Lord of Hosts, that one is King
Of glory, God alone.
