A song of ascents: When ADONAI restored Tziyon's fortunes, we thought we were dreaming.
Our mouths were full of laughter, and our tongues shouted for joy. Among the nations it was said, "ADONAI has done great things for them!"
ADONAI did do great things with us; and we are overjoyed.
Return our people from exile, ADONAI, as streams fill vadis in the Negev.
Those who sow in tears will reap with cries of joy.
He who goes out weeping as he carries his sack of seed will come home with cries of joy as he carries his sheaves of grain.
