Leader:1 When the Lord brought back his exiles to Jerusalem, it was like a dream!
ALL: 2 We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy.
Leader: 2 And the other nations said,
“What amazing things the Lord has done for them.”
ALL: 3 Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us! What joy!
4 Restore our fortunes, Lord, as streams renew the desert.
Leader: 5 Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy.
ALL: 6 They weep as they go to plant their seed,
but they sing as they return with the harvest.
