1 When God delivered Israel
From bondage long ago,
They thought that they were dreaming,
but soon they turned to laughing
And sang the song of joy,
And sang the song of joy.
2 The godless nations round them
Could not deny that power;
They cried, "O see this marvel!"
"God's work," replied the people,
And so they sang for joy,
And so they sang for joy.
3 O God, restore our nation;
Come, irrigate dry souls,
That those who sow in sadness
May reap their sheaves with gladness
And sing the song of joy,
And sing the song of joy.
