Our enemies took us away from Zion. But when the LORD brought us home, it seemed like a dream to us.
Our mouths were filled with laughter. Our tongues sang with joy. Then the people of other nations said, "The LORD has done great things for them."
The LORD has done great things for us. And we are filled with joy.
Lord, bless us with great success again, as rain makes streams flow in the Negev Desert.
Those who cry as they plant their crops will sing with joy when they gather them in.
Those who go out sobbing as they carry seeds to plant will come back singing with joy. They will bring the new crop back with them.
