Psalms 126

Psalm 1261

A song of ascents.2

126:1 When the Lord restored the well-being of Zion,3

we thought we were dreaming.4

126:2 At that time we laughed loudly

and shouted for joy.5

At that time the nations said,6

“The Lord has accomplished great things for these people.”

126:3 The Lord did indeed accomplish great things for us.

We were happy.

126:4 O Lord, restore our well-being,

just as the streams in the arid south are replenished.7

126:5 Those who shed tears as they plant

will shout for joy when they reap the harvest.8

126:6 The one who weeps as he walks along, carrying his bag9 of seed,

will certainly come in with a shout of joy, carrying his sheaves of grain.10
