Oh, how could we ever sing God’s song in this wasteland? If I ever forget you, Jerusalem, let my fingers wither and fall off like leaves. Let my tongue swell and turn black if I fail to remember you, If I fail, O dear Jerusalem, to honor you as my greatest.
O Jerusalem, even still, don’t escape my memory. I treasure you and your songs, even as I hide my harp from the enemy. And if I can’t remember, may I never sing a song again— may my hands never play well again— For what use would it be if I don’t remember Jerusalem as my source of joy?
My tongue cleave to my cheeks; if I bethink not on thee. If I purposed not of thee, Jerusalem; in the beginning of my gladness. (And may my tongue cleave to my cheeks; if I do not remember thee, Jerusalem. Yea, if I do not think of thee, as my greatest joy.)
