    By the rivers dark
    I wandered on.
    I lived my life
    in Babylon.

    And I did forget
    My holy song:
    And I had no strength
    In Babylon.

    By the rivers dark
    Where I could not see
    Who was waiting there
    Who was hunting me.

    And he cut my lip
    And he cut my heart.
    So I could not drink
    From the river dark.

    And he covered me,
    And I saw within,
    My lawless heart
    And my wedding ring,

    I did not know
    And I could not see
    Who was waiting there,
    Who was hunting me.

    By the rivers dark
    I panicked on.
    I belonged at last
    to Babylon.

    Then he struck my heart
    With a deadly force,
    And he said, "This heart:
    It is not yours"

    And he gave the wind
    My wedding ring;
    And he circled us
    With everything.

    By the rivers dark,
    In a wounded dawn,
    I live my life
    In Babylon.

    Though I take my song
    From a withered limb,
    Both song and tree,
    They sing for him.

    Be the truth unsaid
    And the blessing gone,
    If I forget
    My Babylon.

    I did not know
    And I could not see
    Who was waiting there,
    Who was hunting me.

    By the rivers dark,
    Where it all goes on;
    By the rivers dark
    In Babylon.
