A song for going up to the Temple.
1 It will be like a dream
when the LORD comes back with the captives of Zion.* when … Zion Or “when the LORD restores Zion.” See “Zion” in the Word List.
2 We will laugh and sing happy songs!
Then the other nations will say,
“The LORD did a great thing for Zion!”
3 Yes, we will be happy
because the LORD did a great thing for us.
4 So, LORD, bring back the good times,
like a desert stream filled again with flowing water.
5 Then those who were sad when they planted
will be happy when they gather the harvest!
6 Those who cried as they carried the seeds† carried the seeds Or “carried all their possessions.”
will be happy when they bring in the crops!
*126:1 when … Zion Or “when the LORD restores Zion.” See “Zion” in the Word List.
†126:6 carried the seeds Or “carried all their possessions.”
