Thanksgiving for Restoration

1261 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.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Psalm 126:1-3

Commentary on Psalm 126:1-3

(Read Psalm 126:1-3)

It is good to observe how God's deliverances of the church are for us, that we may rejoice in them. And how ought redemption from the wrath to come, from the power of sin and of Satan, to be valued! The sinner convinced of his guilt and danger, when by looking to a crucified Saviour he receives peace to his conscience, and power to break off his sins, often can scarcely believe that the prospect which opens to him is a reality.
