Lyrics:
1.  When God delivered Israel
    From bondage long ago,
    They thought that they were dreaming,
    But soon they turned to laughing
    And sang the song of joy,
    And sang the song of joy.

2.  The godless nations round them
    Could not deny that power;
    They cried, "O see this marvel!"
    "God's work," replied the people,
    And so they sang for joy,
    And so they sang for joy.

3.  O God, restore our nation;
    Come, irrigate dry souls,
    That those who sow in sadness
    May reap their sheaves with gladness
    And sing the song of joy,
    And sing the song of joy.
