Psalms 125

 1 A Canticle in steps. When the Lord turned back the captivity of Zion, we became like those who are consoled 2 Then our mouth was filled with gladness and our tongue with exultation. Then they will say among the nations: "The Lord has done great things for them. 3 The Lord has done great things for us. We have become joyful 4 Convert our captivity, O Lord, like a torrent in the south 5 Those who sow in tears shall reap in exultation 6 When departing, they went forth and wept, sowing their seeds 7 But when returning, they will arrive with exultation, carrying their sheaves
