Psalm 126 Revised Standard Version

Thanksgiving for Restoration

126 1  A Song of Ascents. 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 the watercourses in the Negeb! 5  May those who sow in tears reap with shouts of joy! 6  He that goes forth weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
