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.
