A song of exile based around the text of Psalm 139

BY THE RIVERS OF BABYLON
(My Highest Joy)

By the rivers of Babylon
We sat and wept
When we remembered Zion
How we choked on our regrets
By the rivers of Babylon
We hung our guitars
“For Sale”
In a Babylonian street bazaar

In the gardens of Babylon
We hung our heads and cried
How can we sing the Lord’s song
With such emptiness inside
In the gardens of Babylon
How can we sing the
“Song of the Lord”
While in a strange and foreign land

If I forget you, Jerusalem
Or let another song my voice and skills employ…
If I forget you, Jerusalem
Or place another love above my highest joy…
