We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these Daily Meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a song performed by reggae group The Melodians. "Rivers of Babylon" conjures nostalgia for a long distant and beloved land.

Rivers of Babylon

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah we wept, when we remembered Zion.
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeeah we wept, when we remembered Zion.
When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land
When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Requiring of us a song
Now how shall we sing the lord's song in a strange land
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah let the words of our mouth and the meditations of our heart
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight
Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts
Be acceptable in thy sight here tonight
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down
Yeah we wept, when we remembered Zion.
