Psalm 126 - Desert* [1650 SP] (CM Repeating) by J-R 10 published on 2013-02-23T12:28:52Z *This tune is not found in the Scottish Psalter or Sing Psalms but it is also known as 'Lyngham' or 'O for a thousand tongues. Here it is sung to the Scottish Psalter version of the Psalm. It has been adapted from the original hymn tune 'O For A Thousand Tongues'. The parts may be different to the original but I just recorded the way I'm used to singing this tune. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYHFwYgxc_U 1 When Sion's bondage God turn'd back, as men that dream'd were we. 2 Then fill'd with laughter was our mouth, our tongue with melody: They 'mong the heathen said, The Lord great things for them hath wrought. 3 The Lord hath done great things for us, whence joy to us is brought. 4 As streams of water in the south, our bondage, Lord, recall. 5 Who sow in tears, a reaping time of joy enjoy they shall. 6 That man who, bearing precious seed, in going forth doth mourn, He doubtless, bringing back his sheaves, rejoicing shall return.
