1. The LORD is King of earth’s domain, / The world and all that dwell therein. / Rejoice, O Zion’s sons and daughters, / For it stands firm by His decrees; / He founded it upon the seas, / Established it upon the waters.
2. Who shall ascend the hill of God, / Stand in His holy place, and laud / The LORD, who lives and reigns forever? / He who withstands the wicked’s lure, / Who has clean hands, whose heart is pure, / Who keeps his oaths and does not waver.
3. Rich blessings shall be his reward, / And vindication from the LORD, / Who is the Rock of his salvation. / Such are the men who seek the face / Of Jacob’s God, so rich in grace. / From Him is all their expectation. / W. van der Kamp, 1967; rev.
