By the rivers of Babylon where I sat down
There I wept when I remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon where I sat down
There I wept when I remembered 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 You, O Jah
May both of my hands wither
And may my mouth freeze
If I forget how I felt at Your feet

If I forget You, O Jah
May both of my hands wither
May my mouth freeze
If I forget how I knelt at Your feet

By the rivers of Babylon where I sat down
There I wept when I remembered Zion
By the rivers of Babylon where I sat down
There I wept when I remembered Zion

By the rivers, rivers of Babylon
By the rivers, rivers of Babylon
By the rivers, rivers of Babylon
By the rivers, rivers of Babylon
