1 When the Lord makes us free again it will be like a dream! 2 We will be laughing and singing happy songs! People in other nations will say, ”The Lord did a wonderful thing for the people of Israel.” 3 Yes, we would be so happy if the Lord did that wonderful thing for us. 4 Lord, make us free again, like desert streams filled again with flowing water. 5 A person might be sad when he plants the seeds, but he will be happy when he gathers the crops! 6 He might cry when he carries the seeds out to the field, but he will be happy when he brings the harvest in!
