PSALM 24
METER:  SM (66 86)
SUGGESTED TUNE:  ST. THOMAS or FESTAL SONG
This setting is of the same meter as such hymns as "I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord" and "Rise Up, O Men of God"

1.  The whole earth is the Lord's,
    And all who dwell there-in.
    God found-ed it up-on the seas,
    Built it on o-cean depths.
2.  Who shall a-scend God's hill,
    In ho-ly places stand?
    Those who have clean hands and pure hearts,
    Not false i-dol-a-ters.
3.  They shall be blessed by God,
    He'll call them in-no-cent.
    Such are the ones who seek his face,
    Who come to Ja-cob's God.
4.  Lift up your heads, you gates!
    Lift up, you an-cient doors!
    The glor-ious King is draw-ing near,
    O let him en-ter in!
5.  This King, O who is he?
    He is our might-y God,
    The Lord, who in the bat-tle is
    Vic-tor-ious o'er his foes.
6.  Lift up your heads, you gates!
    Lift up, you an-cient doors!
    The glor-ious King is draw-ing near,
    O let him en-ter in!
7.  This King, O who is he?
    He is our might-y God,
    Lord of the hosts of earth and sky,
    He is our glor-ious King!
