Story

The great Temple stood in Jerusalem but the people were tempted to turn to other gods. They were exiled to a place called Babylon. There are many versions of this song. This is mine. 

Lyrics

One of the Hebrew psalms (137). Exiled from their land, they are taunted by their captives: "Sing to us. Sing to us your sacred songs." They weep, "But how can we sing our sacred songs on foreign soil?"
