By the rivers of Babylon

Boney M frontman, Bobby Farrell, has died while on tour with the band in Russia. They were famous for Rivers of Bablylon song based on the lament of Psalm 137.

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

There on the poplars we hung our harps, for there our captors asked us for songs, our tormentors demanded songs of joy; they said, "Sing us one of the songs of Zion!"

How can we sing the songs of the LORD while in a foreign
land? If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand
forget its skill.

Psalm 137 verses 1-4
