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 re- | -joice 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, thy destructions are come to a per- | -petual end;

* even as the cities which thou hast destroyed, whose memorial is | perished with them.

7 But the LORD shall en- | -dure for ever;

* he hath also pre- | -pared his seat for judgment.

8 For he shall judge the | world in righteousness,

* and minister true | judgment •unto• the people.

9 The LORD also will be a defence | for •the op•pressed,

* 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;

* show the | people of his doings.

12 For when he maketh inquisition for blood, he re- | -member•eth them,

* and forgetteth not the com- | -plaint 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 show all thy praises within the gates of the | daughter• of Sion:

* I will re- | -joice 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 | exe•cute judgment;

* the ungodly is trapped in the work | of his own hands.

17 The wicked shall be turned | to destruction,

* 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 them- | -selves to be but men.

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.
