Psalm 126

1 When the LORD brought back the exiles of Sion,

 we thought we were dreaming.

 2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter;

 on our tongues, songs of joy.

Then the nations themselves said, “What great deeds

 the LORD worked for them!”

 3 What great deeds the LORD worked for us!

 Indeed, we were glad.

4 Bring back our exiles, O LORD,

 as streams in the south.

 5 Those who are sowing in tears

 will sing when they reap.

6 They go out, they go out, full of tears,

 bearing seed for the sowing;

 they come back, they come back with a song,

 bearing their sheaves.
