1 When Zion's fortunes God restored,
it was a dream come true.
2 Our mouths were then with laughter filled,
our tongues with songs anew.
The nations said, "The LORD has done
great things for Israel."
3 The LORD did mighty things for us,
and joy our hearts knew well.
4 Restore our fortunes, gracious LORD,
like streams in desert soil.
5 A joyful harvest will reward
the weeping sower's toil.
6 The man who, bearing seed to sow,
goes out with tears of grief,
will come again with songs of joy,
bearing his harvest sheaf.
