Earth Belongs Unto The Lord, The

The earth belongs unto the Lord,

And all that it contains;

The world that is inhabited,

And all that there remains.

For the foundations thereof

He on the seas did lay,

And He hath it establishèd

Upon the floods to stay.

Who is the man that shall ascend

Into the hill of God?

Or who within His holy place

Shall have a firm abode?

Whose hands are clean, whose heart is pure,

And into vanity

Who hath not lifted up his soul,

Nor sworn deceitfully.

He from th'Eternal shall receive

The blessing him upon,

And righteousness, ev'n from the God

Of his salvation.

This is the generation

That after Him inquire,

O Jacob, who do seek Thy face

With their whole heart's desire.

Ye gates, lift up your heads on high;

Ye doors, that last for aye,

Be lifted up, that so the King

Of glory enter may.

But who of glory is the King?

The mighty Lord is this;

Ev'n that same Lord, that great in might

And strong in battle is.
