Psalm 137: By the Babylonian Rivers

Update: This song is now available at

By the Babylonian Rivers” is one of my favorite songs from Global Songs for Worship and one of my favorite Psalm settings in general. We used it at COS last week and I decided that the line “Lord God, hear your lonely band” fairly demanded an instrumental interlude. I wrote one, and Kurt (accordion) and Emily (violin) took it home: MP3.

    I liked this one a lot, particularly the “special sauce.” Can we play it again sometime please? 🙂

      It’s one of my favorites, so I expect it will come back often. (Not that my own preferences in any way influence song choices.)
