126:1 A Song of Ascents. When the Lord brought back those that returned to Zion, we were like unto them that dream.

126:2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing; then said they among the nations: 'The the Lord hath done great things with these.'

126:3 the Lord hath done great things with us; we are rejoiced.

126:4 Turn our captivity, O the Lord, as the streams in the dry land.

126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

126:6 Though he goeth on his way weeping that beareth the measure of seed, he shall come home with joy, bearing his sheaves.
