Easy Play Psalm 12
Easy Play Chord Sheets provide a simple melody line of musical notation, an English translation, chords, and a play along animation based on Calvin’s 1543 Psalter. The hope is that these all will be helpful for the rediscovery of the singing and playing of these Psalms in Christian’s daily lives worldwide.

2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. Help us, O LORD! The godly all have vanished;
gone are the faithful who your judgments seek.
Men lie to one another, truth is banished;
with flattering lips and double heart they speak.
2. O may the LORD cut off the lips that flatter,
and those who say, “Our tongue makes us succeed!”
Hear how in vanity they proudly chatter,
“Our lips are ours – what master do we need?”
3. “Because they all oppress the weak and needy,
I will arise and right my people’s wrong;
I hear their groans and will destroy the greedy,
and grant my own the rest for which they long.”
4. The words of promise which the LORD has spoken
are purest silver seven times refined.
His covenant stands from age to age unbroken;
he is our God, in truth and faith enshrined.
5. O LORD, protect us from this generation;
forever save us from their ways of sin.
They strut about, and vileness in the nation
is highly praised among the sons of men.
