PSALM 138
Confitebor tibi.

I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, with my | whole heart;

* even before the gods will I sing | praise unto thee.

2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy Name, because of thy loving-|kindness• and truth;

* for thou hast magnified thy Name, and thy | word, above all things.

3 When I called upon thee, thou | heardest me;

* and enduedst my | soul with much strength.

4 All the kings of the earth shall praise | thee, O LORD;

* for they have heard the | words of thy mouth.

5 Yea, they shall sing of the ways | of the LORD,

* that great is the | glory of the LORD.

6 For though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect | unto• the lowly;

* as for the proud, he beholdeth | them afar off.

7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, yet shalt | thou refresh me;

* thou shalt stretch forth thy hand upon the furiousness of mine enemies, and thy | right hand shall save me.

8 The LORD shall make good his loving-kindness | toward me;

* yea, thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever; despise not then the | works of thine own hands.

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.
