Psalm 126

A song for going up to worship.

When Yahweh restored the fortunes of Zion,
    it was as if we were dreaming.
Then our mouths were filled with laughter
    and our tongues with joyful songs.
    Then the nations said,
    Yahweh has done spectacular things for them.”

Yahweh has done spectacular things for us.
    We are overjoyed.
Restore our fortunes, O Yahweh,
    as you restore streams to dry riverbeds in the Negev.
Those who cry while they plant
    will joyfully sing while they harvest.
The person who goes out weeping, carrying his bag of seed,
    will come home singing, carrying his bundles of grain.
