Confitebimur tibi
Confitebimur tibi

UNTO thee, O God, do we give thanks : yea, unto thee do we give thanks.
2 Thy Name also is so nigh : and that do thy wondrous works declare.
3 When I receive the congregation : I shall judge according unto right.
4 The earth is weak, and all the inhabiters thereof : I bear up the pillars of it.
5 I said unto the fools, Deal not so madly: and to the ungodly, Set not up your horn.
6 Set not up your horn on high : and speak not with a stiff neck.
7 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west : nor yet from the south.
8 And why? God is the Judge : he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
9 For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red : it is full mixed, and he poureth out of the same.
10 As for the dregs thereof : all the ungodly of the earth shall drink them, and suck them out.
11 But I will talk of the God of Jacob : and praise him for ever.
12 All the horns of the ungodly also will I break : and the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
