Bonum est confiteri
1 It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord,*
and to sing praises unto your Name, O Most High,
2 To tell of your loving-kindness early in the morning,*
and of your faithfulness in the night season,
3 Upon an instrument of ten strings and upon the lute,*
with the sound of melody upon the harp.
4 For you, Lord, have made me glad by your deeds,*
and I will shout for joy because of your handiwork.
5 O Lord, how glorious are your works;*
your thoughts are very deep.
6 The dull of heart does not consider this,*
and a fool does not understand it:
7 Though the ungodly are as green as the grass, and though all the workers of wickedness flourish,*
they shall be destroyed for ever; but you, Lord, are the Most High for evermore.
8 For lo, your enemies, O Lord, lo, your enemies shall perish,*
and all the workers of wickedness shall be destroyed.
9 But my horn shall be exalted like the horns of wild bulls;*
for I am anointed with fresh oil.
10 My eye also shall see its desire upon my enemies,*
and my ear shall hear with joy the end of the wicked who rise up against me.
11 The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,*
and shall spread abroad like a cedar in Lebanon.
12 Those who are planted in the house of the Lord*
shall flourish in the courts of our God.
13 They also shall bring forth fruit in their old age,*
and shall be green and full of sap,
14 That they may show how upright the Lord is,*
my rock, in whom there is no unrighteousness.
