1 THE earth is the Lord's, And all it contains;
The truth of his words For ever remains;
The saints have a mountain Of blessings in him;
His grace is the fountain, His peace is the stream.
2 To him our request We now have made known,
Who sees what is best For each of his own;
Our heathenish care, We cast it aside;
He heareth the prayer, And he will provide.
3 The modest and meek The earth shall possess:
The kingdom who seek Of Jesus's grace
The power of his Spirit Shall joyfully own,
And all things inherit In virtue of one.
