66a. Confitebor tibi

1 With heart I do accord,
To praise and laud the Lord,
In presence of the just.
2 For great his works are found,
To search them such are bound,
As him do love and trust.
3 His works are glorious,
Also his righteousnesse
It doth endure for ever.
4 His wondrous works he would
We still remember should.
His mercy faileth never.

5 Such as to him love beare,
A portion full faire
He hath up for them laid,
For this they shall well find,
He will them have in mind,
And keep them as he said.
6 For he did not disdaine
His works to shew them plaine,
By lightnings and by thunders:
When he the heathens land
Did give into their hand,
Where they beheld his wonders.

7 Of all his works ensu'th
Both judgement, right and truth,
Whereto his statutes tend:
8 They are decreed sure
For ever to endure
Which equity doth end:
Redemption he gave
His people for to save:
9 And hath also required,
His promise not to faile,
But alwaies to prevaile,
His holy Name be feared.

10 Whoso with heart full faine
True Wisdome would attaine,
The Lord feare and obey:
Such as his lawes do keep,
Shall knowledge have full deep,
His praise shall last for aye.
