In convertendo.

When the LORD turned again the captivi- | -ty of Sion,

* then were we like | unto them that dream.

2 Then was our mouth | filled with laughter,

* and our | tongue with joy.

3 Then said they a- | -mong the heathen,

* The LORD hath | done great things for them.

4 Yea, the LORD hath done great things for | us already;

* where- | -of we rejoice.

5 Turn our captivity, | O LORD,

* as the | rivers in the south.

6 They that | sow in tears

* shall | reap in joy.

7 He that now goeth on his way weeping, and beareth | forth good seed,

* shall doubtless come again with joy, and | bring his sheaves with him.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
