By the Rivers of Babylon
(Ezekiel 1:1–3)

1By the waters of Babylon we sat downe there: also we wept when we remembred Sion.

2We hanged our harpes on the Salon trees: in the mydst of it.

3For there they that led vs away captiue required of vs some matter of a song: and for our waylynges myrth, saying sing vs one of the songes of Sion.

4He aunswered howe can we sing one of the songes of God: in another lande besides our owne?

5If I forget thee O Hierusalem: let my right hande forget her cunning.

6Let my tongue cleaue to the roofe of my mouth, if I do not remember thee: yea if I preferre not thee O Hierusalem aboue my most myrth.

7Remember the chyldren of Edom in the day of Hierusalem: they sayde, downe with it, downe with it, euen to the grounde.

8O daughter of Babylon who must lye wasted: happy shall he be that rewardeth thee as thou hast serued vs.

9Blessed shall he be: that taketh & throweth thy litle children against the stone.
