Babylon על נ​ה​ר​ו​ת ב​ב​ל

from Time Passes By by Acoustic Breezes - Rahel



A beautiful version of the famous lyric from Psalm 137 - - By the waters of Babylon. Sung in the original Hebrew.


BABYLON (Psalm 137; 1,2,4) c music: Ann R. Silverman- Limor

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat and we wept
As we remembered Zion. Upon the willows on its banks we hung
up our harps. But how shall we sing the song of our L-rd on foreign soil?

א עַל נַהֲרוֹת, בָּבֶל--שָׁם יָשַׁבְנוּ, גַּם-בָּכִינוּ: בְּזָכְרֵנוּ, אֶת-צִיּוֹן.
Al naharot Bavel, al naharot Bavel, al naharot Bavel
Sham yashavnu, sham yashavnu sham yashavnu gahm bakhinu
B’zakhray-nu, b’zakhraynu, b’zakhraynu, b’zakhraynu et Tsion

ב עַל-עֲרָבִים בְּתוֹכָהּ-- תָּלִינוּ, כִּנֹּרוֹתֵינוּ.
Al aravim, al aravim, al aravim b’tokha
Talinu, talinu, talinu keenorotaynu

ד אֵיךְ--נָשִׁיר אֶת-שִׁיר-יְהוָה: עַל, אַדְמַת נֵכָר.
Ekh na-shir, ekh na-shir et shir HaShem
Ekh na-shir et shir HaShem al admat neh-khar


עַל נַהֲרוֹת, בָּבֶל
Al naharot Bavel, al naharot Bavel, al naharot Bavel…
