Psalm 137

1  By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept, ♦︎
   when we remembered Zion.
2  As for our lyres, we hung them up ♦︎
   on the willows that grow in that land.
3  For there our captors asked for a song,
      our tormentors called for mirth: ♦︎
   ‘Sing us one of the songs of Zion.’
4  How shall we sing the Lord’s song ♦︎
   in a strange land?
5  If I forget you, O Jerusalem, ♦︎
   let my right hand forget its skill.
6  Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth
      if I do not remember you, ♦︎
   if I set not Jerusalem above my highest joy.
7  Remember, O Lord, against the people of Edom
      the day of Jerusalem, ♦︎
   how they said, ‘Down with it, down with it,
      even to the ground.’
8  O daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, ♦︎
   happy the one who repays you
      for all you have done to us;
9  Who takes your little ones, ♦︎
   and dashes them against the rock.
