1: (A Song of Ascents.) When Yahweh brought back those who returned to Zion, We were like those who dream. 2: Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then said they among the nations, "Yahweh has done great things for them." 3: Yahweh has done great things for us, And we are glad. 4: Restore our fortunes again, Yahweh, Like the streams in the Negev. 5: Those who sow in tears will reap in joy. 6: He who goes out weeping, carrying seed for sowing, Will assuredly come again with joy, carrying his sheaves.
