Confitebor tibi, Domine, quoniam iratus es mihi;
averbtatur ira tua et consolaberis me.
Ecce Deus salus mea: confidam in eo et non timebo,
quoniam fortitudo mea et canticum meum.
Dominus Deus factus est mihi in salutem.

Haurietis doctrinam cum summo gaudio de fonbtibus salutis,
et dicetis in die illa:
Confiteamini Domino; invocate nomen ejus;
nota facite in populis studia ejus;
quia exaltatum est nomen ejus.

Psallite Domino, quia magnificam fecit:
scientiam hanc in omni terra.

Canta et exsulta felix Christi ecclesia,
quia magnus in medio tui Sanctus Israel.
