Hope

The Babylonian captivity was 70 years long, according to the scriptures.

When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion,
            We were like men who dreamed.

      Our mouths were filled with laughter
            And our tongues with songs of joy.
            Then they said among the nations,
            “The LORD has done great things for them.”

      The LORD has done great things for us;
            We are glad.

      Restore our captivity, O LORD
            As the streams in the Southern Desert.

      For those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy.

And he who goes out weeping, carrying his seed to sow,
            Shall indeed return with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
