"By the waters of Babylon", since it's appropriate now:
http://www.trilulilu.ro/miha_mihaela/a7a74e2f049d78
She hears, upon that water without sound,
A voice that cries, “The tomb in Palestine
Is not the porch of spirits lingering.
It is the grave of Jesus, where he lay.”
We live in an old chaos of the sun,
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.

One of my favorite chanters. I particularly like this recording.
