1 When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath adone great bthings for them.
3 The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
4 aTurn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south.
5 They that sow in tears shall reap in ajoy.
6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious aseed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his bsheaves with him.
