74. The Earth, with All That Dwell Therein

1 The earth, with all that dwell therein,
And 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 Ye everlasting doors, give way!
Lift up your heads, ye gates!
For now, behold, to enter in
The King of Glory waits.

4 Who is this glorious King that comes
To claim His rightful throne?
The lord of Hosts, He is the King
Of Glory, God alone.
