1When the LORD brought back the captive ones of Zion, We were like those who dream.
2Then our mouth was filled with laughter And our tongue with joyful shouting; Then they said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."
3The LORD has done great things for us; We are glad.
4Restore our captivity, O LORD, As the streams in the South.
5Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting.
6He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying [his] bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves [with him].
