1 «A Song of degrees.» When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.
3 The Lord hath done great things for vs, whereof we reioyce.
4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.
5 They that sowe in teares, shall reape in ioy.
6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves [with him].
