Easy Play Psalm 140
2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. From evil men, O LORD, protect me;
from all their fury, save my life.
Their hearts and minds are full of malice;
they daily stir up war and strife.
2. Their tongues are sharper than a serpent’s;
their words with deadly venom sting.
O LORD, protect me from the wicked,
for they like vipers ruin bring.
3. Keep me from those who rage against me,
those who for me have spread a net.
They in their pride seek my destruction
and in my path their snares have set.
4. LORD, save me, hear my cry for mercy.
“You are my God,” so I have said.
O LORD, you are my strong defender
and in the battle shield my head.
5. Let not my foes’ desires be granted;
LORD, let their plotting not succeed.
Let their own sin be their undoing;
repay them for their pride and greed.
6. May burning coals fall down upon them;
let them be thrown into the fire.
LORD, put an end to all their slander
and fling them into pits of mire.
7. I know, LORD, you uphold the needy;
you justice for the poor proclaim.
Surely the righteous with thanksgiving
will in your presence praise your name.
