Well, I didn't find your new verses in Rise Up Singing but there is a new verse and chorus there by Victor Ferkiss and Landon Dowdey which runs:

The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof
Its streets, its slums, as well as the stars above
Salvation is here where we laugh, where we cry
Where we seek and love, where we live and die.

When true liberty is found
By fear and by hate we will no more be bound
In love and in life we will find a new birth
In peace and in freedom redeem the earth.
