Lyrics (Psalm 126:1-2, 2-3, 4-5, 6):
Response: The Lord has done great things for us; we are filled with joy.
When the LORD brought back the captives of Zion,
we were like men dreaming.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter,
and our tongue with rejoicing. Response
Then they said among the nations,
"The LORD has done great things for them."
The LORD has done great things for us;
we are glad indeed. Response
Restore our fortunes, O LORD,
like the torrents in the southern desert.
Those who sow in tears
shall reap rejoicing. Response
Although they go forth weeping,
carrying the seed to be sown,
They shall come back rejoicing,
carrying their sheaves. Response
