Hymn/Song Information

By Babel's streams we sat and wept when




By Babelís streams we sat and wept,
when Sion we thought on.
In midst thereof we hangíd our harps
the willow-trees upon.


For there a song required they,
who did us captive bring:
Our spoilers callíd for mirth, and said,
A song of Sion sing.


O how the Lordís song shall we sing
within a foreign land?
If thee, Jerusílem, I forget,
skill part from my right hand.


My tongue to my mouthís roof let cleave,
if I do thee forget,
Jerusalem, and thee above
my chief joy do not set.


Remember Edomís children, Lord,
who in Jerusílems day,
Evín unto its foundation,
Raze, raze it quite, did say.


O daughter thou of Babylon,
near to destruction;
Blessíd shall he be that thee rewards,
as thou to us hast done.


Yea, happy surely shall he be
thy tender little ones
Who shall lay hold upon, and them
shall dash against the stones.
