Title: Psalm 137 By the Babylonian Rivers
Composer: Latvian melody Harm. Geoffrey Laycock, b. 1927
Author: Ewald Bash, 1964
Scripture: Psalm 137
1. By the Babylonian rivers We sat down in grief and wept; Hung our harps upon the willow, Mourned for Zion when we slept. 2. There our captors in derision Did require of us a song; So we sat with staring vision, And the days were hard and long. 3. How shall we sing the Lord's song In a strange and bitter land; Can our voices veil the sorrow? Lord God, help Your holy band.
