By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept, when we remembered you, O Zion.
2. As for our harps, we hung them up on the trees in the midst of that land.
3. For those who led us away captive asked us for a song, and our oppressors called for mirth: "Sing us one of the songs of Zion."
4. How shall we sing the Lord's song upon an alien soil?
By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept, when we remembered you, O Zion.
5. If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill.
6. Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not set Jerusalem above my highest joy.
By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept, when we remembered you, O Zion.
7. Remember the day of Jerusalem, O Lord, against the people of Edom, who said, "Down with it! down with it!
8. O Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, happy the one who pays you back for what you have done to us!
By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept, when we remembered you, O Zion.
