Psalm 126 New International Version

Thanksgiving for Restoration

126 1  When the Lord restored the fortunes of[1] Zion, we were like those who dreamed.[2] 2  Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, "The Lord has done great things for them." 3  The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.

4  Restore our fortunes,[3]Lord, like streams in the Negev. 5  Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. 6  Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.
