When the Lord brought our captives back, we seemed to dream;
we filled our mouths with smile,
our lips, of songs.
Among the Gentiles it was said: 'Wonders
he has done the Lord with them. '
Yes, wonders has the Lord done to us, let us rejoice in joy.
Change our lot, O Lord, like torrents in the desert.
Those who sow the seeds in tears, reaping with joy.
Weeping with sorrow they shall go forth, spreading its seeds;
singing with joy they will return, carrying their bundles!
