Lyrics

(Source: Theology)

By the rivers of Babylon
Where I sat down,
There I wept
When I remember Zion.
There on the poplars,
I broke my guitar
Because my tormentors required songs.
Songs of where I'm from,
Songs of where I'm from,
Oh, songs of Zion.
If I forget U, oh Jah,
May both my hands wither,
And may my mouth freeze
If I forget how I knelt at your feet.
