Lyrics

The Earth is the Lord's, and all that therein is: The compass of the world and they that dwell therein.
For he hath founded it upon the seas, and stablished it upon the flo,Ods.
Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord, or who will rise up in his holy place?
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.
He shall receive the blessing of the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
