Psalm 137 (3:18)

by Jason Silver (played 45 times)


Lyrics

By the rivers of Babylon—
There we sat down and there we wept
When we remembered Zion.
On the willows we hung our harps.
For there our captors asked us for songs,
Our tormentors asked for laughter,
Saying, ‘Sing us one of the songs of Zion!’
But how could we sing the Lord’s song
In a foreign land?

If I forget you, Jerusalem,
Let my right hand also forget!
My tongue cling to my mouth,
If I do not remember you,
If I do not set Jerusalem
Above my highest joy...

[instrumental]

Remember, O Lord, against the Edomites
On the day of her fall, O Jerusalem!
How they said, ‘Tear it down! Tear it down!
Down to its foundations!’

O daughter of Babylon, you devastator!
You devastator!
Happy are they who pay you back
Pay what you have done to us!
Happy shall they be who take
Take your little ones and dash them against the rock!
