Psalmus 125 (126)
Language: Latin 
1 In convertendo Dominum captivitatem Sion
  facti sumus sicut consolati
2 Tunc repletum est gaudio os nostrum et lingua nostra exultatione tunc dicent
  inter gentes magnificavit Dominus facere cum eis
3 Magnificavit Dominus facere nobiscum facti sumus laetantes
4 Converte Domine captivitatem nostram sicut torrens in austro
5 Qui seminant in lacrimis in exultatione metent
6 Euntes ibant et flebant portantes semina sua Venientes autem 
  venient in exultatione portantes manipulos suos

H. Górecki sets line 6

A song of Freedom
Language: English  after the Latin 
When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion,
        Then were we like to those who dream.
Then was our mouth filled with laughter,
        and our tongues with joy.
        Then said they among the heathen,
        "The Lord has done great things for them."
Yea, the Lord hath done great things for us already,
        Whereof we rejoice.

Turn again our captivity, O Lord,
        As the rivers in the South.
They that sow in tears,
        Shall reap in joy!
He that goeth forth and weepeth,
        Bearing precious seed,
        Shall doubtless come again with joy,
        and bring his sheaves with him.
