A Song to Share

One sibling photo a week throughout the year. 46/52

I was introduced to this song last spring when my children and I learned it together over the course of a few weeks during Bible lessons at our homeschool cooperative. It’s a humble song, but one that continues to comfort me in deep ways that I can’t fully explain. I love that it speaks to the hope of the future, while acknowledging the hardship of today and the brokenness I see experience in this lifetime as I seek struggle to be faithful with the seeds God has put in my care. All those who sow weeping will go out with songs of joy. Perhaps you will find it comforting as well…

Psalm 126 (featuring Molly Parden) << bandcamp link where you can listen for free

Our mouths they were filled, filled with laughter
Our tongues they were loosed, loosed with joy

Restore us, O Lord
Restore us, O Lord

Although we are weeping, Lord, help us keep sowing
The seeds of Your kingdom for the day You will reap them
Your sheaves we will carry, Lord please do not tarry
All those who sow weeping, will go out with songs of joy

The nations will say, He has done great things
The nations will sing songs of joy

Restore us, O Lord
Restore us, O Lord

Although we are weeping, Lord, help us keep sowing
The seeds of Your kingdom for the day You will reap them
Your sheaves we will carry, Lord please do not tarry
All those who sow weeping, will go out with songs of joy

“One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in His temple. For He will hide me in His shelter in the day of trouble; He will conceal me under the cover of His tent; He will lift me high upon a rock.” Psalm 27:4-5
