In convertendo. The people of God rejoice at their delivery from captivity.
 When the lord brought back the captivity of Sion, we became like men comforted.
Canticum graduum. In convertendo Dominus captivitatem Sion, facti sumus sicut consolati.
 Then was our mouth filled with gladness; and our tongue with joy. Then shall they say among the Gentiles: The Lord hath done great things for them.
Tunc repletum est gaudio os nostrum, et lingua nostra exsultatione. Tunc dicent inter gentes : Magnificavit Dominus facere cum eis.
 The Lord hath done great things for us: we are become joyful.
Magnificavit Dominus facere nobiscum; facti sumus laetantes.
 Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as a stream in the south.
Converte, Domine, captivitatem nostram, sicut torrens in austro.
 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
Qui seminant in lacrimis, in exsultatione metent.
 Going they went and wept, casting their seeds.
Euntes ibant et flebant, mittentes semina sua.
 But coming they shall come with joyfulness, carrying their sheaves.
Venientes autem venient cum exsultatione, portantes manipulos suos.
