BY THE WATERS OF BABYLON

Composer's Notes

This psalm setting includes the full text as presented in the Revised Common Lectionary.  The melody is, however, a bit involved  to be quickly grasped by the average congregation.  I would  recommend MAY MY TONGUE BE SILENCED as a more user friendly setting of this psalm though the scriptural text would be abridged. If you would use this setting, introduce it with a complete play-through  and if possible provide the assembly the “Congregation’s Copy.” It might also be used for multiple Sundays throughout Lent.
