Super flumina Babylonis


Super flumina Babylonis illic sedimus
et flevimus dum recordaremur tui, Sion:
in salicibus in medio eius, suspendimus organa nostra.


By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down,
yea, we wept when we remembered thee, O Sion.
And in the midst of the willows we hung up our harps.

Psalm 136 (137): 1-2
