Writers
The lyrics and tune of this song are part of the longer Rivers of Babylon, a rastafarian song written and recorded by Brent Dowe and Trevor McNaughton of the Jamaican reggae group The Melodians in 1970. The versions that are being sung here rather refer to the 1978 hit of the German group Boney M, see the video below.

Lyrics 1 (short version)
So let the words of my mouth
And the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable in Thy sight
Oh Bhagwan
Lyrics 2 (long version)
>> This version contains the original lyrics of Rivers of Babylon, sung in Sufi Lieder, not adapted by Anubhava.


By the rivers of Babylon
Where we sat down
And there we wept
When we remembered Zion

When the wicked
Carried us away in captivity
Required from us a song
How can we sing king Alpha’s song
In a strange land

So let the words of our mouth
And the meditations of our heart
Be acceptable in thy sight
Over I
