Psalm 92. Bonum est confiteri.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Eighteenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord, *
    and to sing praises to your Name, O Most High;
  2. To tell of your loving-kindness early in the morning *
    and of your faithfulness in the night season;
  3. On the psaltery, and on the lyre, *
    and to the melody of the harp.
  4. For you have made me glad by your acts, O Lord; *
    and I shout for joy because of the works of your hands.
  5. Lord, how great are your works! *
    your thoughts are very deep.
  6. The dullard does not know, nor does the fool understand, *
    that though the wicked grow like weeds, and all the workers of iniquity flourish,
  7. They flourish only to be destroyed for ever; *
    but you, O Lord, are exalted for evermore.
  8. For lo, your enemies, O Lord, lo, your enemies shall perish, *
    and all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
  9. But my horn you have exalted like the horns of wild bulls; *
    I am anointed with fresh oil.
  10. My eyes also gloat over my enemies, *
    and my ears rejoice to hear the doom of the wicked who rise up against me.
  11. The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, *
    and shall spread abroad like a cedar of Lebanon.
  12. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord, *
    shall flourish in the courts of our God;
  13. They shall still bear fruit in old age; *
    they shall be green and succulent;
  14. That they may show how upright the Lord is, *
    my Rock, in whom there is no fault.
