A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.
1 When the Lord brought back his exiles to Jerusalem,[a]
it was like a dream!
2 We were filled with laughter,
and we sang for joy.
And the other nations said,
“What amazing things the Lord has done for them.”
3 Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us!
4 Restore our fortunes, Lord,
as streams renew the desert.
5 Those who plant in tears
will harvest with shouts of joy.
6 They weep as they go to plant their seed,
but they sing as they return with the harvest.

- 126:1 Hebrew Zion.
Nyimbo yoyimba pokwera ku Yerusalemu.
1Yehova atabwezera akapolo ku Ziyoni,
tinali ngati amene akulota.
2 Pakamwa pathu panadzaza ndi kuseka;
malilime athu ndi nyimbo zachimwemwe.
Pamenepo kunanenedwa pakati pa anthu kuti,
“Yehova wawachitira zinthu zazikulu.”
3 Yehova watichitira zinthu zazikulu,
ndipo tadzazidwa ndi chimwemwe.
4 Tibwezereni madalitso athu, Inu Yehova,
monga mitsinje ya ku Negevi.
5 Iwo amene amafesa akulira,
adzakolola akuyimba nyimbo zachimwemwe.
6 Iye amene amayendayenda nalira,
atanyamula mbewu yokafesa,
adzabwerera akuyimba nyimbo zachimwemwe,
atanyamula mitolo yake.
