A Song of Ascents
1 When Jehovah brought back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream.
2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy. Then they
said among the nations, Jehovah has done great things for them.
3 Jehovah has done great things for us, and we are joyful.
4 Bring back our captivity, O Jehovah, as the streams in the South.
5 Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy.
6 He who goes forth with weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again
with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
