Bonum est confiteri.

It is a good thing to give thanks | unto• the LORD,

* and to sing praises unto thy | Name, O Most Highest;

2 To tell of thy loving-kindness early | in the morning,

* and of thy truth | in the night season;

3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and up- | -on the lute;

* upon a loud instrument, | and upon the harp.

4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad | through thy works;

* and I will rejoice in giving praise for the oper- | -ations of thy hands.

5 O LORD, how glorious | are thy works!

* thy | thoughts are very deep.

6 An unwise man doth not well con- | -sider this,

* and a fool | doth not understand it.

7 When the ungodly are green as the grass, and when all the workers of wicked- | -ness do flourish,

* then shall they be destroyed for ever; but thou, LORD, art the Most | Highest• for evermore.

8 For lo, thine enemies, O LORD, lo, thine ene- | -mies shall perish;

* and all the workers of wicked- | -ness shall be destroyed.

9 But my horn shall be exalted like the horn | of an unicorn;

* for I am a- | -nointed• with fresh oil.

10 Mine eye also shall see his lust | of mine enemies,

* and mine ear shall hear his desire of the wicked that a- | -rise up against me.

11 The righteous shall flourish | like a palm-tree,

* and shall spread abroad | like a •cedar• in Lebanon.

12 Such as are planted in the house | of the LORD,

* shall flourish in the courts of the | house of our God.

13 They also shall bring forth more fruit | in their age,

* and shall be | fat and well-liking;

14 That they may show how true the LORD my | strength is,

* and that there is no un- | -righteousness in him.

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.
