The earth belongs to the LordAdapter: Hal H. Hopson (1985)
Tune: SING BELIEVERS
Published in 2 hymnals
Sing, believers! Give thanks for those whose joy is the Lord.
1 The earth belongs to the Lord,
and all that we enjoy,
A strong foundation was laid,
was laid within the seas. (Refrain)
2 O tell us, who shall ascend?
Who shall go up to God's house?
It is those who love the Lord,
who make God's will their own. (Refrain)
3 O tell us, who are these saints,
these saints who praise your name?
It is those whose hearts are clean,
whose joy is in the Lord. (Refrain)
4 O come, and praise the Lord,
and serve the world God made,
whose love is ever sure:
O praise God's holy name. (Refrain)
