Bonum est confiteri
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord *
and to sing praises unto thy Name, O most Highest;
To tell of thy loving-kindness early in the morning *
and of thy truth in the night-season;
Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the lute *
upon a loud instrument, and upon the harp.
For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy works *
and I will rejoice in giving praise for the operations of thy hands.
The righteous shall flourish like a palm-tree *
and shall spread abroad like a cedar in Libanus.
Such as are planted in the house of the Lord *
shall flourish in the courts of the house of our God.
They also shall bring forth more fruit in their age *
and shall be fat and well-liking.
That they may shew how true the Lord my strength is *
and that there is no unrighteousness in him.
