126 It seemed like a dream
when the Lord brought us back
to the city of Zion. 2 We celebrated with laughter
and joyful songs.
In foreign nations it was said,
“The Lord has worked miracles
for his people.” 3 And so we celebrated
because the Lord had indeed
worked miracles for us.
4 Our Lord, we ask you to bless
our people again,
and let us be like streams
in the Southern Desert. 5 We cried as we went out
to plant our seeds.
Now let us celebrate
as we bring in the crops. 6 We cried on the way
to plant our seeds,
but we will celebrate and shout
as we bring in the crops.
