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
