Easy Play Psalm 53
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. The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, their horrid deeds they cherish;
not one of them does good, while just men perish.
None calls upon the LORD, none sings his laud
or fears his rod.
2. The LORD looks down from heaven’s holy throne
to see if anyone has understanding.
Not one seeks God, but wickedness intending,
the sons of men, to sin and evil prone,
his law disown.
3. Will evildoers never understand?
As they would eat their bread, they are devouring
my helpless people. God they are ignoring;
they do not pray, but evil they have planned
throughout the land.
4. See how they trembled, overwhelmed with fear;
they panicked and their terror was unbounded.
Their bones God scattered; they were left confounded,
for he despised them. Foes may boast and jeer,
but God does hear.
5. O Israel, you people of God’s choice,
that out of Zion might come your salvation!
When God restores the fortunes of his nation,
let Jacob sing and Israel rejoice
with happy voice.
