PSALM 126 Thanksgiving for Return from Captivity. A Song of Ascents. 126 1When the Lord brought back [E]the captive ones of Zion, We were like those who dream. 2Then our mouth was filled with laughter And our tongue with joyful shouting; Then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” 3The Lord has done great things for us; We are glad. 4Restore our captivity, O Lord, As the [F]streams in the [G]South. 5Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. 6He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
