4th Sunday of Lent psalm 137

Go to fullsize image

 1 By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept
       when we remembered Zion.

 2 There on the poplars
       we hung our harps,

 3 for there our captors asked us for songs,
       our tormentors demanded songs of joy;
       they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!”

 4 How can we sing the songs of the LORD
       while in a foreign land?

 5 If I forget you, O Jerusalem,
       may my right hand forget its skill .

 6 May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth
       if I do not remember you,
       if I do not consider Jerusalem
       my highest joy.

 7 Remember, O LORD, what the Edomites did
       on the day Jerusalem fell.
       “Tear it down,” they cried,
       “tear it down to its foundations!”

When we are at our most desparate God is with us. Whatever our needs may be  if we pray with a warm heat and in the love of Christ he will supportus all the day long. when we feel enslaved or lost with the woes of society God will be for us.
