Bible: Psalm 126

Psalm 126 1 

126:1 A song of ascents. 2 

When the Lord restored the well-being of Zion, 3 

we thought we were dreaming. 4 

126:2 At that time we laughed loudly

and shouted for joy. 5 

At that time the nations said, 6 

“The Lord has accomplished great things for these people.”

126:3 The Lord did indeed accomplish great things for us.

We were happy.

126:4 O Lord, restore our well-being,

just as the streams in the arid south are replenished. 7 

126:5 Those who shed tears as they plant

will shout for joy when they reap the harvest. 8 

126:6 The one who weeps as he walks along, carrying his bag 9  of seed,

will certainly come in with a shout of joy, carrying his sheaves of grain. 10
