Closeup look at piano arrangement of Psalm 4 verse 8, with broken chords in the left hand.

The melody and repeated chords are fairly simple, and if it seems a bit hard, you can use the chord symbols to figure out a left hand part.

The second half of the song is really just a repeat of the first half, with a bit fuller sound in the right hand:

The song ends on the DOMINANT chord harmony - rather unusual, but it works in this song, especially if you slowly draw out the final measure's notes.

The melody works as a two part round! 

Begin part two when the first singer sings the final note of line one; the "-ly" of the word "on - ly". 

Here is the same key for guitar players, with guitar tabs to learn the melody:
