Judah in exile wanders (William Lawes)
Title: Judah in exile wanders
Composer: William Lawes
Original text and translations
Judah in exile wanders:
Ah subdu’d by vast afflictions,
and base servitude,
among the Heathen finds no rest.
Ah see how Sion mourns,
her gates and ways lie unfrequented
on her solemn days.
Her virgins weep, her Priests lament,
her fall and all her sweets convert to gall.
