Psalm 126

A Harvest of Joy

A Song of Ascents.

1When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion,[a]
    we were like those who dream.
2Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
    and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then it was said among the nations,
    “The Lord has done great things for them.”
3The Lord has done great things for us,
    and we rejoiced.

4Restore our fortunes, O Lord,
    like the watercourses in the Negeb.
5May those who sow in tears
    reap with shouts of joy.
6Those who go out weeping,
    bearing the seed for sowing,
shall come home with shouts of joy,
    carrying their sheaves.


  1. Psalm 126:1 Or brought back those who returned to Zion
