- A Song of Ascents.
When the LORD brought back those that returned to Zion, we were like unto them that dream.
- Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing;
then said they among the nations: "The LORD hath done great things with these."
- The LORD hath done great things with us;
we are rejoiced.
- Turn our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the dry land.
- They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
- Though he goeth on his way weeping that beareth the measure of seed, he shall come home with joy, bearing his sheaves.
