Psalm 111

(from Day 23 Morning Prayer)

Confitebor tibi

  1. I WILL give thanks unto the Lord with my whole heart: secretly among the faithful, and in the congregation.
  2. The works of the Lord are great: sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
  3. His work is worthy to be praised and had in honour: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
  4. The merciful and gracious Lord hath so done his marvellous works: that they ought to be had in remembrance.
  5. He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he shall ever be mindful of his covenant.
  6. He hath shewed his people the power of his works: that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
  7. The works of his hands are verity and judgement: all his commandments are true.
  8. They stand fast for ever and ever: and are done in truth and equity.
  9. He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever; holy and reverend is his Name.
  10. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do thereafter; the praise of it endureth for ever.
