A Song of Ascents.
1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,a
we were like those who dream.
and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then it was said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”
and we rejoiced.

bearing the seed for sowing,
shall come home with shouts of joy,
carrying their sheaves.
Or brought back those who returned to Zion
