137 Lament over the Destruction of Jerusalem

1 By the riuers of Babylon, there wee sate downe, yea we wept: when we remembred Zion.

2 Wee hanged our harpes vpon the willowes, in the midst thereof.

3 For there they that carried vs away captiue, required of vs a song, and they that wasted vs, required of vs mirth: saying, Sing vs one of the songs of Zion.

4 How shall we sing the Lords song: in a strange land?

5 If I forget thee, O Ierusalem: let my right hand forget her cunning.

6 If I doe not remember thee, let my tongue cleaue to the roofe of my mouth; if I preferre not Ierusalem aboue my chiefe ioy.

7 Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom, in the day of Ierusalem; who sayd, rase it, rase it: euen to the foundation thereof.

8 O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed: happy shall he be that rewardeth thee, as thou hast serued vs.

9 Happy shall he be that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
