‘By the Rivers of Babylon’

Here is Psalm 137 set to music by Boney M–By the Rivers of Babylon. Captivity was harsh and bitter for Israel; but they’d brought it on themselves, adopting heathen practices and refusing to listen to the prophets. Nothing changes, does it?

  1. Ever since you first played this song, I keep hearing it in my mind — especially when Psalm 137 comes up in our Liturgy of the Hours. I especially like this version with the scenic backgrounds.
