    Song Year:

    By the rivers of Babylon,
    Where we sat down,
    And there we wept,
    When we remembered Zion.

    For the wicked carried us away in captivity,
    Required from us a song,
    How can we sing King Alpha song,
    In a strange land..
    For the wicked carried us away in captivity,
    Required from us a song,
    How can we sing King Alpha song,
    In a strange land.

    Sing it out!
    Sing a song of freedom brother.
    Sing it out, sing it clear!

    Sing a song of freedom sisters.
    Sing it out, sing it loud!

    So let the words of our mouth,
    And the meditation of our heart,
    Be acceptable in Thy sight, over I.
    So let the words of our mouth,
    And the meditation of our heart,
    Be acceptable in Thy sight, over I.

    (..)

    By the rivers of Babylon,
    Where we sat down,
    And there we wept,
    When we remembered Zion..
