Psalm 126

 

1When the Lord restored the fortunes of | Zion,*

         we were like | those who dream.

 

2Then our mouth was filled with | laughter,*

         and our tongue with | shouts of joy;

 

then they said among the nations,

“The Lord has done great | things for them.”*

         3The Lord has done great things for us; | we are glad.

 

4Restore our fortunes, | O Lord,*

         like streams in the | Negeb!

 

5Those who | sow in tears*

         shall reap with | shouts of joy!

 

6He who goes out weeping,

         bearing the seed for | sowing,*

shall come home with shouts of joy,

         bringing his | sheaves with him.
