Available translation(s): ENG
Et je lui donnerai sa vigne désormais,
et la vallée d’Achor comme porte d’espoir;
Et elle y chantera ainsi qu’au jour de sa jeunesse,
Ainsi qu’au jour où elle monta vers nous de la Terre d’Egypte.

The door of hope
Language: English  after the French (Français) 
And henceforth I will give her [back] her vineyard,
and the valley of Achor like a door of hope;
And there she will sing just as in the day of her youth,
Just as in the day when she came up to us from the land of Egypt.
