Jeremiah Rehearsing his Last Lamentation to the Prophets and Chief Captives at Babylon, (painting)
Rossiter, Thos. P.
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 46
By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down,/ Yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion./ We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof,/ For they that had carried us away captives required of us a song,/ And they that had wasted us required of us mirth,/ Saying: Sing us one of the songs of Zion. How shall we sing the Lord's song/ In a strange land./ If I forget thee, o Jerusalem%/ Let my right hand forget her cunning./ If I do not remember thee,/ Let my tongue cleaf to the roof of my mouth,/ If I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy. Psalm CXXVII. [P. 10.] 00510050 Presented by the Artist to the Academy January, 1863. [P. 10.]
