C86. Consecration of a Church

1 The earth is the LORD'S and all that therein is; the compass of the world, and they that dwell therein.
2 For he hath founded it upon the seas and prepared it upon the floods.
3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD; or who shall rise up in his holy place?
4 Even he that hath clean hands and a pure heart and that hath not lift up his mind unto vanity nor sworn to deceive his neighbour.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him, even of them that seek thy face O Jacob.
7 Lift up your heads O ye gates and be lift up ye everlasting doors and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory; it is the LORD strong and mighty even the LORD mighty in battle.
7 Lift up your heads O ye gates and be lift up ye everlasting doors and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory; Even the LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.
