126 A Song of mAscents.
1 When the Lord srestored the fortunes of Zion,
we were like those who tdream.
2 Then our umouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with shouts of joy;
then they said among the nations,
v“The Lord has done great things for them.”
we are glad.
like streams in the Negeb!
5 wThose who sow in tears
shall reap with shouts of joy!
bearing the seed for sowing,
shall come home with shouts of joy,
bringing his sheaves with him.
