68. The Earth, with All That Dwell Therein

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

2 What man shall stand before the Lord
On Zion's holy hill?
The clean of hand, the pure of heart,
The just who do his will.

3 Lo, such are they that seek for God,
And blest by him they live;
To them his perfect righteousness
The God of grace will give.

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

5 Who is this glorious King that comes
To claim his sovereign right?
It is the Lord omnipotent,
All conquering in his might.

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

7 Who is this glorious King that comes
To claim his rightful throne?
The Lord of hosts, he is the King
Of Glory, God alone.
