Confiteantur tibi populi, Deus,
Confiteantur tibi populi omnes,
laetentur et exultent gentes,
quoniam judicas populos in aequitate,
et gentes in terra dirigis.
Confiteantur tibi populi, Deus,
Confiteantur tibi populi omnes,
terra dedit fructum suum.
Benedicat nos Deus noster,
et metuant eum omnes fines terrae.
