How Shall We Sing the Lord’s Song?1 By the waters of Babylon,
there we sat down and wept,
when we remembered Zion.
2 On the willows ▼
▼ Or poplarsthere
we hung up our lyres.
3 For there our captors
required of us songs,
and our tormentors, mirth, saying,
“Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”
4 b How shall we sing the Lord’s song
in a foreign land?
5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
c let my right hand forget its skill!
6 Let my d tongue stick to the roof of my mouth,
if I do not remember you,
if I do not set Jerusalem
above my highest joy!
7 Remember, O Lord, against the e Edomites
f the day of Jerusalem,
how they said, g “Lay it bare, lay it bare,
down to its foundations!”
8 O daughter of Babylon h doomed to be destroyed,
blessed shall he be who i repays you
with what you have done to us!
9 Blessed shall he be who takes your little ones
and j dashes them against the rock!
