Lyrics: Psalm 24

Domini est terra, et plenitudo eius; orbis terrarum, et universi qui habitant in eo.
Quia ipse super maria fundavit eum, et super flumina præparavit eum.
Quis ascendet in montem Domini? aut quis stabit in loco sancto eius?
Innocens manibus et mundo corde, qui non accepit in vano animam suam,
nec juravit in dolo proximo suo:
hic accipiet benedictionem a Domino, et misericordiam a Deo salutari suo.
Hæc est generatio quærentium eum, quærentium faciem Dei Jacob.
Attollite portas, principes, vestras, et elevamini, portæ æternales, et introibit rex gloriæ.
Quis est iste rex gloriæ? Dominus fortis et potens, Dominus potens in prælio.
Attollite portas, principes, vestras, et elevamini, portæ æternales, et introibit rex gloriæ.
Quis est iste rex gloriæ? Dominus virtutum ipse est rex gloriæ.

The earth is the Lord's, and all that therein is: the compass of the world, and they that dwell therein.
For he hath founded it upon the seas: and prepared it upon the floods.
Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord: or who shall rise up in his holy place?
Even he that hath clean hands, and a pure heart: and that hath not lift up his mind unto vanity, nor sworn to deceive his neighbour.
He shall receive the blessing from the Lord: and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
This is the generation of them that seek him: even of them that seek thy face, O Jacob.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors:
and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is the King of glory: it is the Lord strong and mighty, even the Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors :
and the King of glory shall come in.
Who is the King of glory : even the Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.
