Confitebor tibi in organis musicis pro veritate tua, Deus meus.
Psallam tibi in cithara, O sancte in Israel.
Exaltabunt labia mea cum cantavero tibi,
et anima mea quam redimisti.

I will acknowledge you, my God, for thy truth, by instrumental works.
I hymn you on the gittern, O holy one in Israel.
With praise my lips will exalt thee,
and my spirit which thou hast redeemed.
