When Zion’s Fortunes God Restored

  1. When Zion’s fortunes God restored,
    it seemed as if a dream.
    Our mouths were then with laughter filled,
    our tongues with shouts of glee.
  2. The nations said, “The LORD has done
    great things for Israel.”
    The LORD did mighty things for us,
    our hearts with gladness swell.
  3. Restore our fortunes, gracious LORD,
    like streams in desert soil.
    Then those who sow their seed in tears
    shall reap with shouts of joy.
  4. The man who, bearing seed to sow,
    goes out with tears of grief,
    will come again with songs of joy,
    with sheaves of grain he reaps.
