Confitebor tibi

With heart I do accord

Full Text

1 With heart I do accord
to praise and laud the Lord,
In presence of the just;
For great his works are found,
To search them such are bound,
as do him love and trust,

2 His works are glorious,
and righteousness to us,
It ever doth endure:
His wondrous works he would
We still remember should;
his mercy is full sure.

3 Such as to him bear love,
a portion fair below
He hath up for them laid:
For this they shall well find,
He will them have in mind,
and keep them as he said.

4 For he did not disdain
his works to show them plain,
By lightnings and by thunders:
When he the heathens' land
Did give into their hand,
where they beheld his wonders.

5 Of all his works ensu'th
both judgment, right, and truth,
Whereto his statutes tend:
They are decreèd sure
For ever to endure,
on which we may depend.

6 Redemption great he gave
his people for to save,
It also hath appeared;
His promise doth hot fail,
But evermore prevail:
his holy Name be feared.

7 Whoso with heart full fain
true wisdom would attain,
The Lord fear and obey
Such as his laws do keep,
Shall knowledge have full deep;
his praise shall last alway.
