A Meditation on Psalm 19 and Psalm 137

Posted by james0235 on June 11, 2009

Hat Tip to man with black hat

By the rivers of Babylon

Where we sat down

There we wept

When he remembered Zion
By the waters of Babylon, there we sat down and wept, when we remembered Zion.

Psalm 137:1

Then the wicked

Carried us away in captivity

Required from us a song

Now how shall we sing the Lord’s song

in a strange land
For there our captors required of us songs, and our tormentors, mirth, saying, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!” How shall we sing the LORD’s song in a foreign land?

Psalm 137:3-4

Let the words of our mouth

and the meditation of our heart

be acceptable in thy sight here tonight
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

“We worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity, neither confounding the persons, nor dividing the substance…This is the Catholic faith, which except a man believe faithfully, he cannot be saved.”
