<> When the LORD brought back those who returned to Tziyon, We were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing. Then said they among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."
The LORD has done great things for us, And we are glad.
Restore our fortunes again, LORD, Like the streams in the Negev.
Those who sow in tears will reap in joy.
He who goes out weeping, carrying seed for sowing, Will assuredly come again with joy, carrying his sheaves.
