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.

2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. O God, grant me your vindication.
LORD, plead my cause, defending me
against a cruel, ungodly nation;
and from a crooked generation
that loves deceit and treachery,
save me and set me free!
2. You are my stronghold from oppression.
O why then have you cast me off?
Why let my foes with their aggression
cause me such mourning and depression?
See how they all around me scoff
and at my sorrows laugh.
3. Send forth, O God of my salvation,
your light and truth to be my guide
and lead me to my destination:
your holy hill and habitation,
where I with you will safely hide
in shelter you provide.
4. Then, at your sacred altar standing,
my hands to you in prayer I’ll raise.
With harp and voice, in worship blending,
your courts resound; while psalms, ascending
to you, my highest joy, bring praise
for all your wondrous ways.
5. My soul, why are you sad and grieving,
why so oppressed with anxious care?
Hope yet in God, his word believing;
for, light and joy from him receiving,
I’ll praise his name again and laud
my Saviour and my God.
