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
Requiering of us a song
Now, how shall we sing the lord’s song in a strange land



Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah



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, 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 remember Zion
Yeah, yeah, 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 remember Zion
Oh, have the power



By the rivers of Babylon
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
There we sat down
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, we wept
