Songs for the Sojourn: For Those Who Sow Weeping

July 14, 2019

SCRIPTURE: Psalm 126

A Song of Ascents.

[1] When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion,

we were like those who dream.

[2] Then our mouth was filled with laughter,

and our tongue with shouts of joy;

then they said among the nations,

“The LORD has done great things for them.”

[3] The LORD has done great things for us;

we are glad.

[4] Restore our fortunes, O LORD,

like streams in the Negeb!

[5] Those who sow in tears

shall reap with shouts of joy!

[6] He who goes out weeping,

bearing the seed for sowing,

shall come home with shouts of joy,

bringing his sheaves with him. (ESV)
