By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, Yea, we wept, yea we wept, when we remember’d Zion. We hanged our harps, we hanged our harps upon the willows, Upon the willows, upon the willows in the midst thereof. For they that led us away captive, required of us a song, And they that wasted us requir’d of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion. How shall we sing the Lord’s Song, in a strange land? If I forget thee, O Jerusalem; let my right hand forget her cunning.
