A Song of Freedom

When the Lord turned again the captivity of Sion: then were we like to those that dream.
Then was our mouth filled with laughter: and our tongues with joy.
Then said they among the heathen: The Lord hath done great things for them.
Yea, the Lord hath done great things for us already: whereof we rejoice.
Turn again our captivity, O Lord: as the rivers in the south.
They that sow in tears: shall reap in joy.
He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed: shall doubtless come again with joy, and bring his sheaves with him.
Whereof we rejoice.

Psalm 126
