Psalm 126

Restore Our Fortunes, O Lord

A Song of Ascents.

1 When the LORD 1restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who 2dream.
2 Then our 3mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, 4"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 5Those 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.
