1 When the Lord overturned the captivity of Zion,*
then were we like those who dream.
2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter*
and our tongue with shouts of joy.
3 Then they said among the nations,*
"The Lord has done great things for them."
4 Indeed, the Lord has done great things for us already,*
whereof we rejoice.
5 Overturn our captivity, O Lord,*
as when streams refresh the deserts of the south.
6 Those who sow in tears*
shall reap with songs of joy.
7 He who goes on his way weeping and bears good seed*
shall doubtless come again with joy, and bring his sheaves with him.
