Psalm 126

Psalm 126

A Prayer for Deliverance
1When the Lord brought us back to Jerusalem,#126.1: brought us back to Jerusalem; or made Jerusalem prosperous again.
it was like a dream!
2How we laughed, how we sang for joy!
Then the other nations said about us,
“The Lord did great things for them.”
3Indeed he did great things for us;
how happy we were!
4 Lord, make us prosperous again,#126.4: make us prosperous again; or take us back to our land.
just as the rain brings water back to dry riverbeds.
5Let those who wept as they planted their crops,
gather the harvest with joy!
6Those who wept as they went out carrying the seed
will come back singing for joy,
as they bring in the harvest.
