Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

68. The Earth, with All That Dwell Therein

1 The earth, with all that dwell therein,
with all its wealth untold,
bBelongs to God who founded it
Upon the seas of old.

2 What man shall stand before the Lord
on Zion's holy hill?
The clean of hand, the pure of heart,
the just who do his will.

3 Lo, such are they that seek for God,
and blest by him they live;
to them his perfect righteousness
the God of grace will give.

4 Ye everlasting doors, give way;
lift up your heads, ye gates!
For now, behold, to enter in
the King of glory waits.

5 Who is this glorious King that comes
to claim his sovereign right?
It is the Lord omnipotent,
all-conqu'ring in his might.

6 Ye everlasting doors, give way;
lift up your heads, ye gates!
For now, behold, to enter in
the King of glory waits.

7 Who is this glorious King that comes
to claim his rightful throne?
The Lord of Hosts, he is the King
of glory, God alone.
