Words: Brady and Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David
1 This spacious earth is all the Lord's, the Lord's her fullness is. The world, and they that dwell therein, by sov'reign right are his. 2 He framed and fixed it on the seas, and his Almighty hand Upon inconstant floods has made the stable fabric stand. 3 But for himself this Lord of all one chosen seat designed; O! who shall to that sacred hill desired admittance find! 4 The man whose hands and heart are pure, whose thoughts from pride are free; Who honest poverty prefers to gainful perjury. 5 This, this is he, on whom the Lord shall show'r his blessings down, Who God his Savior shall vouchsafe with righteousness to crown. 6 Such is the race of saints, by whom the sacred courts are trod; And such the proselytes that seek the face of Jacob's God. 7 Erect your heads, eternal gates, unfold to entertain The King of Glory; see, he comes with his celestial train. 8 Who is this King of glory? Who? The Lord for strength renowned; In battle mighty, o'er his foes eternal victor crowned. 9 Erect your heads, ye gates, unfold in state to entertain The King of glory; see, he comes with all his shining train. 10 Who is this King of glory? who? The Lord of hosts renowned; Of glory he alone is king, who is with glory crowned.
