we were like men dreaming.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with rejoicing.

we are glad indeed.

Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
like the torrents in the southern desert.

shall reap rejoicing.

carrying the seed to be sown,
They shall come back rejoicing,
carrying their sheaves.
