(Song of the goings up.)
126 When Jehovah came back to Sion
we were like men in a dream.
2 Then our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with caroling;
Then they said among the nations
“Jehovah has done great things for these people!”
3 Jehovah has done great things for us;
we have become merrymakers.
4 Come back to us, Jehovah,
as it comes in gorges in the South.
5 Those who sow with tears
will reap with carols.
6 The man carrying the seed for the planting goes along weeping, the man carrying his sheaves comes in with caroling.
