What marvels the Lord has done for us

Psalm 125

  1. When the Lord delivered
    Sion from slavery it felt like a dream:
    What marvels the Lord has done for us!
    O yes! we were glad!


    Then our mouths were filled with laughter,
    on our lips there were songs:
    What marvels the Lord has done for us!
    O yes! we were glad!
  2. The heathens said,
    'What marvellous deeds their God worked for them!'
    What marvels the Lord has done for us!
    O yes! we were glad!


    Deliver us, O Lord, from our bondage
    as streams in dry land:
    What marvels the Lord has done for us!
    O yes! we were glad!
  3. Those who are sowing in tears
    will sing when they reap:
    What marvels the Lord has done for us!
    O yes! we were glad!


    They go out in tears,
    they come back full of song, carrying their sheaves:
    What marvels the Lord has done for us!
    O yes! we were glad!
