Lyrics

Verse 1
The earth and the fulness with which it is stored,
The world and its dwellers belong to the Lord;
For He on the seas its foundation hath laid,
And firm on the waters its pillars hath laid.

Chorus
Be lifted, ye gates, to the beautiful way;
Ye doors everlasting, an entrance display;
The King of all glory high honors await,
The King of all glory shall enter in state.

Verse 2
Oh, who shall the hill of Jehovah ascend,
Or who in the place of His holiness stand?
The man of pure heart and of hands without stain,
Who swears not to falsehood, nor loves what is vain.

Verse 3
He shall from Jehovah the blessing receive,
The God of salvation shall righteousness give;
Ye gates, lift your heads, and an entrance display;
Ye doors everlasting, wide open the way.
