Psalm 126




Psalm 126.1  When Zion’s exile band
the LORD brought back, we were
as those who dream.
2 For then our mouth was filled
with laughter and delight;
our tongue then overflowed
with shouts of joy.

Among the nations all
they said, “The LORD has done
great things for them!”
3 The LORD has done for us
great things, and we are glad.
4 Restore our fortunes, LORD,
like desert streams.

5 For those who sow in tears
shall reap at harvest time
with shouts of joy.
6 The one who weeping goes,
bearing his precious seed,
shall singing come again,
bearing his sheaves.
