New International Version

A song of ascents.

1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of1 Zion, we were like those who dreamed.2
2 Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”
3 The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes,3Lord, like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
6 Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.
1 Or Lord brought back the captives to
2 Or those restored to health
3 Or Bring back our captives
