1 Matkalaulu. Kun Herra käänsi Siionin kohtalon, se oli meille kuin unta.

3 Totta! Suuret ovat meidän Herramme teot, niistä me saamme iloita.

4 Herra, käännä jälleen meidän kohtalomme niin kuin aina tuot vedet Negevin kuiviin uomiin.

5 Jotka kyynelin kylvävät, ne riemuiten korjaavat.

6 Jotka itkien menevät kylvämään vakkaansa kantaen, ne riemuiten palaavat kotiin lyhteet sylissään.

1 A Song of the going up. When the Lord made a change in Zion's fate, we were like men in a dream.

2 Then our mouths were full of laughing, and our tongues gave a glad cry; they said among the nations, The Lord has done great things for them.

3 The Lord has done great things for us; because of which we are glad.

4 Let our fate be changed, O Lord, like the streams in the South.

5 Those who put in seed with weeping will get in the grain with cries of joy.

6 Though a man may go out weeping, taking his vessel of seed with him; he will come again in joy, with the corded stems of grain in his arms.
