When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion

1
When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion,
We were like them that dream,
We were like them that dream.
2
Then was our mouth filled with laughter,
And our tongue with singing:
Then said they among the nations,
The Lord hath done great things,
The Lord hath done great things for them.
  The Lord hath done great things for us;
Whereof we are glad.
The Lord hath done great things for us;
  Whereof we are glad.
3
Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams,
As the streams in the south,
As the streams in the south.
4
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy,
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
5
He that goeth forth and weepeth,
Bearing precious seed, shall doubtless,
Come again with rejoicing,
Come again with rejoicing,
Bringing his sheaves with him.
  The Lord hath done great things for us;
Whereof we are glad.
The Lord hath done great things for us;
  Whereof we are glad.
6
When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion,
We were like them that dream,
We were like them that dream.

Very uplifting. Blessed be the songwriter. Blessed be all those whose hope is in the Lord. Their tears will be turned to joy and they will weep no more. How great Thou art. Amen

I Like the tune. But I am not clear how to sing stanzas 3,4,5,6. Can someone help out? I won't mind an actual singing of all the lines in my email, if possible.
