By the rivers of Babylon ,
Where he sat down,
And there he wept
When he remembered Zion

Oh, the wicked carried us away in captivity,
Required from us a song,
How can we sing King Alpha's song
Inna strange land?

So, let the words of our mouth
And the meditations of our heart
Be acceptable in Thy sight
Oh, verai!

Songwriters
FARIAN, FRANK/REYAM, GEORGE/DOWE, BRENT/MC NAUGHTON, TREVOR
