1 The LORD restored us we were freed:
Our life was like a dream!
We laughed and sang: the heathen said,
'The LORD did this for them.'

2 The LORD had done great things for us,
As every eye could see;
He made our thankful hearts rejoice,
He set the captives free!

3 Restore us, LORD, again, we pray:
Make desert waters spring;
For those that sow in tears today
At harvest time shall sing.

4 The sower who goes forth and grieves
To see such barren ground
Shall carry home his golden sheaves,
While songs of joy resound.

Psalm 126, David G. Preston
