1 The earth belongs to God alone
and all that it contains;
the world and its inhabitants
God's steadfast love maintains.
2 The Lord who brought the world to birth
laid earth's foundations sure,
and firm within the surging seas
established them secure.
3 Who, then, are those who shall ascend
the holy hill of God?
And who is fit to stand within
the presence of the Lord?
4 All those whose hands and hearts are clean,
with no room in their mind
for worthless vanities or vows
of a deceitful kind.
5 These are the people who receive
a blessing from the Lord,
and vindication for their ways
from God, their saving God.
6 O God of Jacob, help us all
who gather in this place,
to seek your presence with us now:
we yearn to see your face.
