Psalm 126

The Second Time Zion is Returning by Jon Bowles (With Vocals)


It's the second time that Zion is returning
All of us like all of them who're in a dream
For our mouths' will fill again, sounds of laughter will be then
And a land of joyful singing will be seen

It will then be said by all among the nations
The Eternal has exceeded every scheme.
And release He gives to us from confinement in the dust
To become his sweet refreshing southern stream

So all those who sow in tears will reap in gladness
All that weep today though carrying precious seed,
Shall undoubtedly return, with rejoicing they will learn
Of a harvest that exceeds their every need.
