Psalm 92

(from Day 18 Morning Prayer)

Bonum est confiteri

  1. 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 upon 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 operations of thy hands.
  5. O Lord, how glorious are thy works: thy thoughts are very deep.
  6. An unwise man doth not well consider this: and a fool doth not understand it.
  7. When the ungodly are green as the grass, and when all the workers of wickedness 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 enemies shall perish: and all the workers of wickedness shall be destroyed.
  9. But mine horn shall be exalted like the horn of an unicorn: for I am anointed 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 arise up against me.
  11. The righteous shall flourish like a palm-tree: and shall spread abroad like a cedar in Libanus.
  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 shew how true the Lord my strength is: and that there is no unrighteousness in him.
