1    The earth is the Lord’s and all that fills it,  

the compass of the world and all who dwell therein.

2    For he has founded it upon the seas  

and set it firm upon the rivers of the deep.

3    ‘Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord,  

or who can rise up in his holy place?’

4    ‘Those who have clean hands and a pure heart,  

who have not lifted up their soul to an idol,

nor sworn an oath to a lie;

5    ‘They shall receive a blessing from the Lord,  

a just reward from the God of their salvation.’

6    Such is the company of those who seek him,  

of those who seek your face, O God of Jacob.

7    Lift up your heads, O gates;

be lifted up, you everlasting doors;  

and the King of glory shall come in.

8    ‘Who is the King of glory?’  

‘The Lord, strong and mighty,

the Lord who is mighty in battle.’

9    Lift up your heads, O gates;

be lifted up, you everlasting doors;  

and the King of glory shall come in.

10  ‘Who is this King of glory?’  

‘The Lord of hosts,

he is the King of glory.’

Psalm 24

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.
