Representative Text

What marvels the Lord worked for us!
Indeed we were glad.

Response:
The Lord has done great things for us;
we are filled with joy.

1 When the Lord delivered Zion from
bondage, it seemed like a dream.
Then was our mouth filled with laughter,
on our lips there were songs. [Response]

2 The heathens themselves said:
"What marvels the Lord worked for them!"
What marvels the Lord worked for us!
Indeed we were glad. [Response]

3 Deliver us, O Lord, from our bondage
as streams in dry land.
Those who are sowing in tears
will sing when they reap. [Response]

4 They go out, they go out, full of tears,
carrying seed for sowing;
they come back, they come back, full
of song, carrying their sheaves. [Response]
