Psalm 126


[Recommended tunes: St Matthew, Abbey, St Leonard]


A Song of degrees.


1When Sion's bondage God turn'd back,

as men that dream'd were we.

2Then fill'd with laughter was our mouth,

our tongue with melody:

They 'mong the heathen said, The Lord

great things for them hath wrought.

3The Lord hath done great things for us,

whence joy to us is brought.


4As streams of water in the south,

our bondage, Lord, recall.

5Who sow in tears, a reaping time

of joy enjoy they shall.

6That man who, bearing precious seed,

in going forth doth mourn,

He doubtless, bringing back his sheaves,

rejoicing shall return.



The Psalms in Metre
