1  Confitebor tibi, Domine rex et collaudabo te Deum, Salvatorem meum.
2  Confitebor nomini tuo, quoniam adiutor et protector factus es mihi
3  et liberasti corpus meum a perditione, a laqueo linguae iniquae
et a labiis operantium mendacium et in conspectu astantium factus es mihi adiutor.

1  O Lord, my king, I give thee thanks, O God, my deliverer, I praise thee;
2  I extol thy name, for all the succour and protection thou hast given me,
3  saving my life from deadly peril, when calumny lay in wait,
and lying tongues assailed me. In full sight of all that stood by thou didst come to my rescue.
