1 A Song of the Ascents. In Jehovah's turning back to the captivity of Zion, We have been as dreamers. 2 Then filled with laughter is our mouth, And our tongue with singing, Then do they say among nations, 'Jehovah did great things with these.' 3 Jehovah did great things with us, We have been joyful.
4 Turn again, O Jehovah, to our captivity, As streams in the south. 5 Those sowing in tears, with singing do reap, 6 Whoso goeth on and weepeth, Bearing the basket of seed, Surely cometh in with singing, bearing his sheaves!
