Psalm 126:1-6

A Song of the Ascents. 126  When Jehovah gathered back the captive ones* of Zion,+ We became like those who were dreaming.+   At that time our mouth came to be filled with laughter,+ And our tongue with a joyful cry.+ At that time they proceeded to say among the nations:+ “Jehovah has done a great thing in what he has done with them.”*+   Jehovah has done a great thing in what he has done with us.*+ We have become joyful.+   Do gather back, O Jehovah, our company of captives,*+ Like streambeds in the Negʹeb.*+   Those sowing seed with tears+ Will reap even with a joyful cry.+   The one that without fail goes forth, even weeping,+ Carrying along a bagful of seed,+ Will without fail come in with a joyful cry,+ Carrying along his sheaves.+
