176. The Earth and All That Dwell Therein

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

2 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.

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

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