Book of Psalms

The Douay-Rheims Bible


Chapter 125

1    When the lord brought back the captivity of Sion, we became like men comforted.
2    Then was our mouth filled with gladness; and our tongue with joy. Then shall they say among the Gentiles: The Lord hath done great things for them.
3    The Lord hath done great things for us: we are become joyful.
4    Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as a stream in the south.
5    They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
6    Going they went and wept, casting their seeds.
7    But coming they shall come with joyfulness, carrying their sheaves.
