Confitebor tibi
Confitebor tibi

I WILL give thanks unto thee, O Lord, with my whole heart : I will speak of all thy marvellous works.
2. I will be glad and rejoice in thee : yea, my songs will I make of thy Name, O thou most Highest.
3. While mine enemies are driven back : they shall fall and perish at thy presence.
4. For thou hast maintained my right and my cause : thou art set in the throne that judgest right.
5. Thou hast rebuked the heathen, and destroyed the ungodly : thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.
6. O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end : even as the cities which thou hast destroyed, their memorial is perished with them.
7. But the Lord shall endure for ever : he hath also prepared his seat for judgement.
8. For he shall judge the world in righteousness : and minister true judgement unto the people.
9. The Lord also will be a defence for the oppressed : even a refuge in due time of trouble.
10. And they that know thy Name will put their trust in thee : for thou, Lord, hast never failed them that seek thee.
11. O praise the Lord which dwelleth in Sion : shew the people of his doings.
12. For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he remembereth them : and forgetteth not the complaint of the poor.
13. Have mercy upon me, O Lord; consider the trouble which I suffer of them that hate me : thou that liftest me up from the gates of death.
14. That I may shew all thy praises within the ports of the daughter of Sion : I will rejoice in thy salvation.
15. The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made : in the same net which they hid privily, is their foot taken.
16. The Lord is known to execute judgement : the ungodly is trapped in the work of his own hands.
17. The wicked shall be turned into hell : and all the people that forget God.
18. For the poor shall not alway be forgotten : the patient abiding of the meek shall not perish for ever.
19. Up, Lord, and let not man have the upper hand : let the heathen be judged in thy sight.
20. Put them in fear, O Lord : that the heathen may know themselves to be but men.
