1
A Song of the Ascents.
In Jehovah's turning back [to] the captivity of Zion, We have been as dreamers.
2
Then filled [with] laughter is our mouth, And our tongue [with] singing, Then do they say among nations, `Jehovah did great things with these.'
3
Jehovah did great things with us, We have been joyful.
4
Turn again, O Jehovah, [to] our captivity, As streams in the south.
5
Those sowing in tears, with singing do reap,
6
Whoso goeth on and weepeth, Bearing the basket of seed, Surely cometh in with singing, bearing his sheaves!
