                 G
By the Rivers of  Babylon

Where he sat down
            D
And there he went
                  G
When he remembered  Zion

Over the wicked carry us away captivity
C                    G
Required from us this  song
                                     D        G
How can we sing King Alfa's song in a  strange  land
                      D                  G             D
So let the words of our  mouth and the med-tation of our  heart
     G               D
Be ac-ceptable in thy  sight
       G
Over I
