The Psalms are the ancient prayers of the Jewish people, here paraphrased into contemporary language.
This Sunday's Psalm
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat,
when we remembered Zion.
On oleanders growing there,
we hung our harps.
There our captors told us:
Our tormentors demanded,
songs of joy from Zion.
How, how could we sing
the songs of God in foreign lands.
O Jerusalem if I forget you,
let my right hand forget how to move!
Let my tongue stick to my palate
if I fail to remember you,
if you, Jerusalem, are not my greatest joy!
