The Melodians didn't write the original. The body of the song is Psalm 137. The refrain is from psalm 19.

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"
