DJ
That is then and dis is now
Sing a song of praise and shout it out load
To reach Zion you have to be strong like a lion,
Unity and strength divided we fall
Stand up for your right and pure in your want
Keep it in your mind and lock it in your thoughts

[Chorus]
By the river of Babylon
Where we sat down
Yeah, where we wept when remembered Zion
for the wicked carried us away captivity
Required from us a song
Now, how can we sing king alpha song in strange land

Sing it loud, sing a song of freedom
Sing along brothers, sing along sisters

Oh, let the words of our mouths
And the meditation of our hearts
Be acceptable in thy sight oh for I
For the wicked carried us away captivity
Required from us a song in a strange land

Oh, Oh let the words,
Let the words of my mouth
Be acceptable in thy sight

[Chorus]
