Full Text

By the waters of Babylon where we sat down,
and there we wept
when we remembered Zion.
By the waters of Babylon where we sat down,
and there we wept
when we remembered Zion.
For the wicked carried us away,
captivity required from us a song.
How can we sing our holy song in a strange land?
For the wicked carried us away,
captivity required from us a song.
How can we sing our holy song in a strange land?
So let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart
be acceptable in your sight, O God.
