Psalm 126

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

 1  When Zion's bondage God turned back,
       as men that dreamed were we.
 2  Then filled with laughter was our mouth,
       our tongue with melody:

    They 'mong the heathen said, The Lord
       great things for them hath wrought.
 3  The Lord hath done great things for us,
       whence joy to us is brought.

 4  As streams of water in the south,
       our bondage, Lord, recall.
 5  Who sow in tears, a reaping time
       of joy enjoy they shall.

 6  That man who, bearing precious seed,
       in going forth doth mourn,
    He doubtless, bringing back his sheaves,
       rejoicing shall return.
