Easy Play Psalm 58
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. Do you indeed, you men so mighty,
decree in justice what is right?
Are all your verdicts truth and light,
and do you judge mankind uprightly?
No, in your hearts you wrongs devise;
you deal out violence and lies.
2. Right from their birth the wicked wander,
right from the womb they go astray;
deceit and falsehood mark their way.
Like serpents’ venom is their slander;
they’re deaf like snakes that block their ears
lest they the charmer’s voice should hear.
3. God, break the teeth of those that slaughter;
repay them with their victims’ pangs;
tear out their savage lion fangs.
O let them vanish like the waters
that over rocks and gravel pass;
cause them to wither like the grass.
4. Let them to ruin be surrendered
like snails that turn to slime and die;
as to untimely births, deny
to them the gift of sunlight’s splendour.
Let them like thorns be cleared away;
destroy them, LORD, without delay.
5. Then will the righteous with rejoicing
look on when God his vengeance shows;
they’ll bathe their feet in blood of foes.
Then men will say, their gladness voicing,
“The righteous their reward will see:
there is a God of equity.”
