Psalm 24


[Recommended tunes: v 1-6 Praetorius, Winchester; 
v 7-10 St Georgeís Edinburgh, St Magnus]



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.
