Psalm 126

A pilgrimage song.

1 When the LORD changed Zion's circumstances for the better, it was like we had been dreaming.
2 Our mouths were suddenly filled with laughter; our tongues were filled with joyful shouts. It was even said, at that time, among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them!"
3 Yes, the LORD has done great things for us, and we are overjoyed.
4 LORD, change our circumstances for the better, like dry streams in the desert waste!
5 Let those who plant with tears reap the harvest with joyful shouts.
6 Let those who go out, crying and carrying their seed, come home with joyful shouts, carrying bales of grain!
