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.
