1 Behold how good and pleasant it is ♦︎
to dwell together in unity.
2 It is like the precious oil upon the head, ♦︎
running down upon the beard,
3 Even on Aarons beard, ♦︎
running down upon the collar of his clothing.
4 It is like the dew of Hermon ♦︎
running down upon the hills of Zion.
5 For there the Lord has promised his blessing: ♦︎
even life for evermore.
1 Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, ♦︎
you that by night stand in the house of the Lord.
2 Lift up your hands towards the sanctuary ♦︎
and bless the Lord.
3 The Lord who made heaven and earth ♦︎
give you blessing out of Zion.
1 By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept, ♦︎
when we remembered Zion.
2 As for our lyres, we hung them up ♦︎
on the willows that grow in that land.
3 For there our captors asked for a song,
our tormentors called for mirth: ♦︎
Sing us one of the songs of Zion.
4 How shall we sing the Lords song ♦︎
in a strange land?
5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem, ♦︎
let my right hand forget its skill.
6 Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth
if I do not remember you, ♦︎
if I set not Jerusalem above my highest joy.
