Hymn/Song Information

This spacious earth is all the Lord's




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.


He framed and fixed it on the seas,
and his Almighty hand
Upon inconstant floods has made
the stable fabric stand.


But for himself this Lord of all
one chosen seat designed;
O! who shall to that sacred hill
desired admittance find!


The man whose hands and heart are pure,
whose thoughts from pride are free;
Who honest poverty prefers
to gainful perjury.


This, this is he, on whom the Lord
shall show'r his blessings down,
Who God his Savior shall vouchsafe
with righteousness to crown.


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.


Erect your heads, eternal gates,
unfold to entertain
The King of Glory; see, he comes
with his celestial train.


Who is this King of glory? Who?
The Lord for strength renowned;
In battle mighty, o'er his foes
eternal victor crowned.


Erect your heads, ye gates, unfold
in state to entertain
The King of glory; see, he comes
with all his shining train.


Who is this King of glory? who?
The Lord of hosts renowned;
Of glory he alone is king,
who is with glory crowned.
