Psalm 126

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    When Sion's bondage God turn'd back,
       as men that dream'd were we.
2    Then fill'd 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.
