1. When the Lord brought the exiles back to Zion, we were like those moving in a dream.

2. Then our mouths were filled with laughter, and our tongues with songs of joy. Among the nations it was said, "The Lord has done great things for them."

3. The Lord had done great things for us, and we were glad indeed.

4. Bring back our exiles, O Lord, like fresh streams in the desert.

5. Those who sow in tears will reap with songs and shouts of joy.

6. They went forth weeping, bearing the seeds for sowing, they will come home with joyful shouts, bringing their harvested sheaves.





“Não se desencoraje, pois, se na alma existe o contínuo esforço de melhorar, no final o Senhor a premia fazendo nela florir, de repente, todas as virtudes como num jardim florido.” São Padre Pio de Pietrelcina
