EVERYTHING BELONGS TO GOD

The earth and everything in it is the Lord’s
The world and all its people belong to Him.
For He laid on the seas, the earth’s foundation
And built it on the ocean depths.

Open up, ancient gates!
Open up, ancient doors,
And let the King of glory enter.
Who is the King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty;
The Lord, invincible in battle.

Who may climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in His holy place?
Only those whose hands and hearts are pure,
Who don’t trust in idols and never tell lies.

Open up, ancient gates!
Open up, ancient doors,
And let the King of glory enter.
Who is the King of glory?
The Lord of Heaven’s Armies—
He is the King of glory.

They will receive the Lord’s blessing
And vindication from God their saviour.
Such people may seek You
and worship in Your presence, O God.

“Blessing and honour
And glory and power
Belong to the one
Sitting on the throne
And to the Lamb
Forever and ever.”
