A Song of Ascents.
1When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion,
We were like unto them that dream.
2Then was our mouth filled with laughter,
And our tongue with singing:
Then said they among the nations,
The LORD hath done great things for them.
3The LORD hath done great things for us;
Whereof we are glad.
4Turn again our captivity, O LORD,
As the streams in the South.
5They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
6Though he goeth on his way weeping, bearing forth the seed;
He shall come again with joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
