Psalm 137 : By the waters
"The psalm is a hymn expressing the yearnings of the Jewish people in exile following the Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem in 586 BC." (from Wiki) It is the lament of a people who disobeyed their God. It may not seem like a verse you are likely to memorize, but the music is a haunting reminder of the consequences of not following God's way.
