The Lord is King and all the earth, as well as all power and authority, belongs to Him. Yet because of Jesus who has cleansed us from our sins we can approach Him without fear.

Psalm 24 (Listen)

The King of Glory

A Psalm of David.


24:1   The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof,1
    the world and those who dwell therein,
  for he has founded it upon the seas
    and established it upon the rivers.


  Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD?
    And who shall stand in his holy place?
  He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
    who does not lift up his soul to what is false
    and does not swear deceitfully.
  He will receive blessing from the LORD
    and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
  Such is the generation of those who seek him,
    who seek the face of the God of Jacob.2 Selah


  Lift up your heads, O gates!
    And be lifted up, O ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
  Who is this King of glory?
    The LORD, strong and mighty,
    the LORD, mighty in battle!
  Lift up your heads, O gates!
    And lift them up, O ancient doors,
    that the King of glory may come in.
10   Who is this King of glory?
    The LORD of hosts,
    he is the King of glory! Selah

     1 A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. 2 For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

     3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

     7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. 10 Who is this King of glory?

1. Hail the day that sees Him rise
To His throne above the skies
Christ, awhile to mortals given
Reascends His native heaven

2. There the glorious triumph waits
Lift your heads, eternal gates
Christ hath conquered death and sin
Take the King of glory in

3. See the Heav’n its Lord receives,
Yet He loves the earth He leaves,
Though returning to His throne,
Still He calls mankind His own

4. See! He lifts His hands above
See! He shows the prints of love
Hark! His gracious lips bestow
Blessings on His church below

5. Still for us He intercedes
His prevailing death He pleads
Near Himself prepares our place
Harbinger of human race

6. There we shall with Thee remain
Partners of Thy endless reign
There Thy face unclouded see
Find our heaven of heavens in Thee
