When that the Lord again his Zion had




When that the Lord again his Zion had forth brought
From bondage great and also servitude extreme,
His work was such as did surmount man's heart and thought;
So that we were much like to them that used to dream:
Our mouths were all with laughter fill-ed then,
Also our tongues did show us joyful men.


The heathen folk were forcèd then this to confess,
How that the Lord for them also great things had done;
but much more we, and therefore can confess no less;
Wherefore to joy we have good cause, as we begun
O Lord, go forth, Thou canst our bondage end,
Who to deserts does flowing rivers send.


Full true it is, that they which sow in tears indeed,
A time will come when they shall reap in mirth and joy:
They went and wept in bearing of their precious seed,
For that their foes full oftentimes did them annoy;
But their return they joyfully shall see,
Their sheaves bring home, and not impairèd be.
