126
A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.
1When the lord brought back his exiles to Jerusalem,#  Hebrew Zion.
it was like a dream!
2We were filled with laughter,
and we sang for joy.
And the other nations said,
“What amazing things the lord has done for them.”
3Yes, the lord has done amazing things for us!
What joy!
4Restore our fortunes, lord,
as streams renew the desert.
5Those who plant in tears
will harvest with shouts of joy.
6They weep as they go to plant their seed,
but they sing as they return with the harvest.
