Psalm 137: By the Babylonian Rivers
“By the Babylonian Rivers” is one of my favorite songs from Global Songs for Worship and one of my favorite Psalm settings in general. I decided that the line “Lord God, hear your lonely band” fairly demanded an instrumental interlude, so I wrote one.
Download includes piano accompaniment, interlude, SATB harmony, and second verse harmonization.
