View Lyrics
When the Lord brought back the captives,
We were like the ones who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter;
Did our tongue with rapture sing!
Then they said among the nations,
"How the Lord has done great things!"
How the Lord raised up our station;
In our heart great gladness rings!

From our bonds, Lord, give us freedom,
As the streams flow in the south.
Those who sow in tears shall gather,
Full of glad and joyful shouts.
He who plants in sorrow, weeping,
Bringing forth his precious seed,
Shall return with joyous singing,
Bearing with him all his sheaves.
