DOLLY PARTON - Welcome Home Lyrics

With great antisipation he waited at the door
His only son was due from over seas
For months now he'd been waitin since he'd gone off to war
And his eyes were filled with tears of great relief.

Chorus:
Welcome home son, his loving arms held open
And his heart so full of love
Welcome home son, I've been prayin and been hopin'
And I never did give up
I knew that you'd return to me
The place where you were meant to be
Rest now for you've been gone to long.
I heard him say as they embraced
I've waited so long for this day
My son, my very own, welcome home.

Well, a dreary rain is fallin where another soldier fell
While a mother wakes up cryin in the night
She thought she heard him calling, in that moment she could tell
Her only son had passed into the light.

Welcome home son, his loving arms held open
And his heart so full of love
Welcome home son as Jesus stood their glowing
Their hand reached out and touched
I knew that you'd return to me
The place that you were meant to be
Rest now for youve been gone to long.
I heard him say as they embraced
I've waited so long for this day
My son, my very own, welcome home.

I think of all families who have lost a darlin one
I think how jesus died for all our sins
And I think how much god loves us to
Send his only son to live and die and then to live again.

Welcome home son I hope to hear God saying
When it's my time to go
Welcome home while the angel band is playing
And god comes to claim my soul
The angels will be singing and joy bells will be ringing
Rejoicing I'll shout and sing along.

When their are no more wars to fight
And where all children of the light
When the father and the son say welcome home.

Welcome home, welcome home.
Welcome home...
