songs of thanks and praise - sung by real voices - just correct
great song, great version - done real - would like to here Winston's acapella version - real music - for the King of Kings
The Melodians didn't write the original. The body of the song is Psalm 137. The refrain is from psalm 19.
burning spear's acapella version is quite lovely as well

A classic Reggae tune!!!!!!!!
Greatest reggae tune EVER! And I am no fan of the bible. Still, this song always gives me the tingles.
great, great tune...
The Melodians wrote the original, yes. The lyrics are heavily based on bible verse. Specifically the refrain is psalm 19:14. "By the Rivers of Babylon" is from psalm 19. The original version is in the movie "The Harder They Come"
is this the original?
