From the rising of the sun


From the rising of the sun to the settling of the same
The name of the Lord our God is to be praised!

When the Lord brought the captives home,
It all seemed like a dream.
Then our mouths were filled with laughter
And our lips with songs of joy!

All the people living ‘round us said:
“The Lord had done great things!
Yes, the Lord had done great things for us,
And we are glad!”

From the rising of the sun to the settling of the same
The name of the Lord our God is to be praised!

O Lord bring all people back
Let your rivers overflow.
May all those who’ve sown in tears
Now reap with songs of joy!

Yes we went away with weeping;
Carrying the seed
Now we’ve all come home with singing
Carrying the sheaves!

From the rising of the sun to the settling of the same
The name of the Lord our God is to be praised!
