Easy Play Psalm 123
2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. To you in heaven, our LORD so good and great,
I lift my eyes and wait.
As eyes of slaves will to their lord be turning
when for a favour yearning,
and as a slave girl’s eyes intently linger
upon her mistress’ fingers,
so do our eyes look to our Master’s face
until he grants us grace.
2. Show us your pity; LORD, be merciful!
O LORD, be merciful!
Too long, O God, have we been made to suffer
the insults of the scoffer.
We’ve had our fill of taunting and derision,
of all the cruel oppression
by those who in their proud complacency
treat us disdainfully.

May these resources be helpful in discovering Christ at work in our daily lives, by singing and playing the words of the Psalms that He gave to His church of all ages & all places.
By using these ancient, simple & unique church melodies of the Reformation, we share in common with the many Reformed believers & martyrs that have gone on before and who have often sung these unique melodies to their very last breath.
