The earth belongs to the Lord,
The world and all who live there.
He founded it upon the seas,
Established it upon the seas.
He is the King of glory;
He’s the mighty King.

Refrain

The Lord strong and mighty,
God who is mighty in battle,
The Lord Almighty is King forever;
The King of all glory is He.

Now who may climb the Lord’s hill
And in His holy place stand?
The one who has clean hands, pure heart,
Who does not worship idol gods,
Or swear by what is false,
Or swear by what is false.

Refrain

The one who stands before God
Will blessings from Him receive,
And vindication from the Lord,
And vindication from the Lord.
God blesses those who seek Him,
Those who seek His face.

Refrain

Lift up your heads, O you gates;
Be lifted up, ancient doors.
Now let the King of glory in;
Now let the King of glory in.
Who is the King of glory?
Who’s the mighty King?

Refrain
