Confitemini Domino

  1. O GIVE thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious: because his mercy endureth for ever.
  2. Let Israel now confess that he is gracious: and that his mercy endureth for ever.
  3. Let the house of Aaron now confess: that his mercy endureth for ever.
  4. Yea, let them now that fear the Lord confess: that his mercy endureth for ever.
  5. I called upon the Lord in trouble: and the Lord heard me at large.
  6. The Lord is on my side: I will not fear what man doeth unto me.
  7. The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon mine enemies.
  8. It is better to trust in the Lord: than to put any confidence in man.
  9. It is better to trust in the Lord: than to put any confidence in princes.
  10. All nations compassed me round about: but in the Name of the Lord will I destroy them.
  11. They kept me in on every side, they kept me in, I say, on every side: but in the Name of the Lord will I destroy them.
  12. They came about me like bees, and are extinct even as the fire among the thorns: for in the Name of the Lord I will destroy them.
  13. Thou hast thrust sore at me, that I might fall: but the Lord was my help.
  14. The Lord is my strength, and my song: and is become my salvation.
  15. The voice of joy and health is in the dwellings of the righteous: the right hand of the Lord bringeth mighty things to pass.
  16. The right hand of the Lord hath the pre-eminence: the right hand of the Lord bringeth mighty things to pass.
  17. I shall not die, but live: and declare the works of the Lord.
  18. The Lord hath chastened and corrected me: but he hath not given me over unto death.
  19. Open me the gates of righteousness: that I may go into them, and give thanks unto the Lord.
  20. This is the gate of the Lord: the righteous shall enter into it.
  21. I will thank thee, for thou hast heard me: and art become my salvation.
  22. The same stone which the builders refused: is become the head-stone in the corner.
  23. This is the Lord's doing: and it is marvellous in our eyes.
  24. This is the day which the Lord hath made: we will rejoice and be glad in it.
  25. Help me now, O Lord: O Lord, send us now prosperity.
  26. Blessed be he that cometh in the Name of the Lord: we have wished you good luck , ye that are of the house of the Lord.
  27. God is the Lord who hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, yea, even unto the horns of the altar.
  28. Thou art my God, and I will thank thee: thou art my God, and I will praise thee.
  29. O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is gracious: and his mercy endureth for ever.
