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.
