words: Gary Hicks (based on Psalm 24), copyright 2010
tune: “Holy Manna” by William Moore (“Brethren, We Have Met to Worship”)
1. All the earth belongs to Jesus, All the world is His domain
Every person, every planet: Universal is His reign.
Swim the mighty, raging ocean, Climb the mountain, feel the sun
God’s creative Word was spoken: He declared, and it was done.
2. Who may climb the hill of Zion? Who may reach God’s holy place?
There to stand in fearful Presence, Feel the tender touch of grace?
All whose hearts and hands are holy, All whose lips speak truth and love
Such are welcomed by the Father To His pleasant courts above.
3. Lift your heads, O gates of Zion; Lift them up, you ancient doors
Open to the King of glory, Open up to Christ the Lord.
Who, this King so strong and mighty? Who, this robed and shining one?
He is mighty to deliver – God Almighty, God the Son.
4. Now we come, with hearts wide open, Now we come to all fall down
Put aside your lofty notions, Put away your boastful crown
Only One deserves our worship, Only One deserves our praise
Come to offer full devotion, Love and serve Him all our days!
