1.By flowing streams in Babylon,
when we remembered Zion there,
we sat down and we wept in grief;
on willows there we hung our lyres.

2.For there our captors called for songs,
our cruel tormentors asked for mirth.
They called for us to sing to them:
“Come, sing us one of Zion’s songs!”

3.But how can we the LORD’s song sing,
when we are in a foreign land?
If I forget Jerusalem,
let my right hand forget its skill!

4.O let my tongue to my palate cleave
if I do not remember you,
if I set not Jerusalem
above my greatest, highest joy.

5.Remember Edom’s sons, O LORD,
who uttered in Jerus’lem’s day,
“O lay it bare, O lay it bare!
Destroy down to the ground its base.”

6. O Babel’s daughter, doomed to die,
blest be the one repaying you.
Blest he who takes your little ones
and dashes them against the rock!
