From "Songs, duets and other compositions by Doctor Harington of Bath never before published. Studio fallente laborem. London. Printed for the author & sold by the engraver E. Riley No. 8 Strand J. Preston No. 97 Strand Lintern's Bath &c". 1800. The piece is most likely to have been performed as a glee, rather than in a liturgical context.
Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

When Zion's sons did mourn, and the songs of her children were heard no more: by the waters of Babylon we sat down and wept, when we remembered thee, O Zion.
Then in grief our harps were hushed and we hanged them on the willows that were therein.
