Words: Sing Psalms, 2003

View Lyrics
When Zion's fortunes God restored,
it was a dream come true.
Our mouths were then with laughter filled,
our tongues with songs anew.

The nations said, "The Lord has done
great things for Israel."
The Lord did mighty things for us,
and joy our hearts knew well.

Restore our fortunes, gracious Lord,
like streams in desert soil.
A joyful harvest will reward
the weeping sower's toil.

The man who, bearing seed to sow,
goes out with tears of grief,
will come again with songs of joy,
bearing his harvest sheaf.
