PSALM 24
Common Meter: 8,6,8,6
1The earth belongs unto the Lord,
and all that it contains;
The world that is inhabited,
and all that there remains.
2For the foundations thereof
he on the seas did lay,
And he hath it established
upon the floods to stay.
3Who is the man that shall ascend
into the hill of God?
Or who within his holy place
shall have a firm abode?
4Whose hands are clean, whose heart is pure,
and unto vanity
Who hath not lifted up his soul,
nor sworn deceitfully.
5He from th' Eternal shall receive
the blessing him upon,
And righteousness, ev'n from the God
of his salvation.
6This is the generation
that after him enquire,
O Jacob, who do seek thy face
with their whole heart's desire.
7Ye gates, lift up your heads on high;
ye doors that last for aye,
Be lifted up, that so the King
of glory enter may.
8But 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.
9Ye gates, lift up your heads; ye doors,
doors that do last for aye,
Be lifted up, that so the King
of glory enter may.
10But who is he that is the King
of glory? who is this?
The Lord of hosts, and none but he,
the King of glory is.
