Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion

When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion

Published in 15 hymnals

Full Text

Antiphon:
Sing O heavens and be joyful O earth,
and break forth into singing, O mountains:
For the Lord hath comforted his people
and will have mercy upon his afflicted.

1 When the Lord turned again the captivity of Sion;
Then were we like unto them that dream.

2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter:
And our mouth with joy. [Antiphon]

[3] Then said they among the heathen:
The Lord hath done great things for them.

4 Yea the Lord hath done great things for us already:
Whereof we rejoice. [Antiphon]

5 Turn our captivity, O Lord:
As the rivers in the south.

6 They that sow in tears:
shall reap in joy. [Antiphon]

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.
