Rivers of Babylon
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah we wept, when we remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah we wept, when we 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 meditation of our heart
Be acceptable in Thy sight, here tonight

Let the words of our mouth
And the meditation of our heart
Be acceptable in thy sight, here tonight

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah we wept, when we remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah we wept, when we remembered Zion

By the rivers of Babylon (dark tears of Babylon)
There we sat down (you got to sing a song)
Yeah we wept (sing a song of love)
When we remembered Zion (yeah yeah yeah)

By the rivers of Babylon (rough bits of Babylon)
There we sat down (you hear the people cry)
Yeah we wept (they need their God)
When we remembered Zion (ooh, have the power)
