A Song of Degrees
1 When bring back did Jehovah the captivity of Zion, We were like those that dream.
2 Now filled with laughter shall be our mouth, And our tongue with exultation: Now shall they say among the heathen, |Great things Jehovah hath done for them.|
3 Great things Jehovah hath done for us, Whereof we have been made glad.
4 Bring back, O Jehovah! our captivity, As rivers in the South.
5 They who sow in tears In exultation shall reap.
6 Going forth, he shall go and weep, Carrying the price of the seed: Returning he shall return with exultation, Bearing his sheaves.
