Psalm 137--

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat, sat and wept, as we thought of Zion.
There on the willows we hung up our lyres,
for our captors asked us there for songs, our tormentors, for amusement,
"Sing us one of the songs of Zion."
How can we sing a song of the Lord on alien soil?
If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither;
let my tongue stick to my palate if I cease to think of you,
if I do not keep Jerusalem in memory even at my happiest hour.
Remember, O Lord, against the Edomites the day of Jerusalem's fall;
how they cried, "Strip her, strip her to her very foundations!"
Fair Babylon, you predator,
a blessing on him who repays you in kind what you have inflicted on us;
a blessing on him who seizes your babies
and dashes them against the rocks.

Bob Marley--

By the rivers of Babylon
Where he sat down
And there he wept when he remembered Zion.


Oh from wicked, carry us away from captivity
Required from us a song
How can we singing out for song in a strange land.


So let the words of our mouth
And the meditations of our hearts
Be acceptable in thy sight
O-verride


By the rivers of Babylon
Where he sat down
And there he wept when he remembered Zion.


Oh from wicked, carry us away from captivity
Required from us a song
How can we singing out for song in a strange land.
How can we singing out for song in a strange land.
