Lyrics

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

When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land

When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Requiring of us a song
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land

Let the words of our mouth and the meditations of our heart
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight

Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight

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

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