The Psalmistry

Original Music for the 150 Psalms

SONG OF EXILE (PSALM 137) (CCLI 4438364)

1. On the banks of the Euphrates.
very far from Israel,
as my gaze turns wet with sorrow,
I remember how You fell.
I long for You.

2. Shall my heart now be rejoicing?
How can music flow from me?
A puppet for the force of evil:
that, my Lord, I'll never be.
I long for You.

3. Now beware ye Lords of evil
of the vengeance of God's hand.
Your destruction is before you,
who defiled the promised land.
Death comes to you.
