24A. 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,
upon the seas of old.

2 Oh, 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,
the just who do God's will.

3 Lo, such are they that seek the Lord,
and blest by God they live;
to them the Lord's pure righteous ways
the God of grace will give,
the God of grace will give.

4 O everlasting doors, give way;
lift up your head, O gates!
For now, behold, to enter in,
the King of glory waits,
the King of glory waits.

5 Who is this glorious King that comes
to sit upon the throne?
All hail the Lord of Hosts who is
our glorious King alone,
our glorious King alone.
