Psalm 126


Restore Our Fortunes, O Lord



 A SONG OF ASCENTS. 


      1 When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, 

      we were like those who dream. 

      2 Then 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.” 

      3 The LORD has done great things for us; 

      we are glad. 


      4 Restore our fortunes, O LORD, 

      like streams in the Negeb! 

      5 Those who sow in tears 

      shall reap with shouts of joy! 

      6 He who goes out weeping, 

      bearing the seed for sowing, 

      shall come home with shouts of joy, 

      bringing his sheaves with him.
