Psalm 126

The Lord has done great things for His people, Israel.

A Song of degrees.

1 When the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath adone great bthings for them.

3 The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

4 aTurn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south.

5 They that sow in tears shall reap in ajoy.

6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious aseed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his bsheaves with him.
