From Melodiae sacrae... Auctore D Petro BonHomio, Frankfurt, 1603.

Lyrics: Psalm 137, v.1-4

Super flumina Babylonis illic sedimus et flevimus: cum recordaremur Sion.
In salicibus in medio ejus suspendimus organa nostra:
quia illic interrogaverunt nos, qui captivos duxerunt nos, verba cantionum, et qui abduxerunt nos: Hymnum cantate nobis de canticis Sion.
Quomodo cantabimus canticum Domini in terra aliena?

By the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept: when we remembered thee, O Sion.
As for our harps, we hanged them up: upon the trees that are therein:
for they that led us away captive required of us then a song, and melody in our heaviness: sing us one of the songs of Sion.
How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?

Pierre Bonhomme
(c.1555 - 1617)
