Response:
Let my tongue be silenced
if ever I forget you.

1 By the rivers of Babylon
there we sat and wept,
rememb'ring Sion;
on the poplars that grew there
we hung up our harps. [Response]

2 For it was there that they asked us,
our captors, for songs,
our oppressors, for joy.
"Sing to us," they said,
"one of Zion's songs." [Response]

3 O how could we sing
the song of the Lord
on alien soil?
If I forget you, Jerusalem,
let my right hand wither! [Response]

4 O let my tongue
cleave to my mouth
if I remember you not, if I
prize not Jerusalem
above all my joys! [Response]
