By the Waters of Babylon

Will Butler
Lingua: Inglese



By the waters of Babylon we hung up our harps
And there we wept

For our kidnappers came to us
They came to us and they said,
"Sing.
Sing us a song to make us laugh."

But how can I sing the Lord's song in a foreign land?
How can we sing the Lord's song in a foreign land?

If I forget thee, O my city, let my right hand forget her cunning
If I forget thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth—
if I love anything as much as you

Remember, O Lord, when our enemies came
and they said "Burn it. Burn it to the stones."

O daughter of Babylon—who will be destroyed—
happy will he be
that will do to you as you have done to us.

Happy will he be
that takes and throws thy little ones against the stones.

Happy will he be who takes and throws thy little ones against the stones.
