Wayfaring Stranger

Psalm 126: When God First Brought Us Back from Exile

When God first brought us back from exile,
we were as dazed as those who dream.
Then were our mouths brimming with laughter;
joy from our lips gushed like a stream.
The godless cried in envious wonder,
“Look what the Lord has done for them!”
Indeed our God has greatly blessed us;
rejoice and sing, Jerusalem!
