Psalms 126 - NIV

A song of ascents.


When the Lord restored the fortunes of[a] Zion,
we were like those who dreamed.[b]

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.


Restore our fortunes,[c] Lord,
like streams in the Negev.

5 Those who sow with tears
will reap with songs of joy.

6 Those who go out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with them.
