Welcome Home-crd  Dolly Parton

With gr[G]eat anticipation he waited at t[C]he door,[G]
His [D]only son was due from overseas.[G]
       [G]                             [C]F[G]or months now heâd been waitin since heâd gone off to war,
And his eye[D]s were filled with tears of great relief.[G]
Welcome home, s[C]on,
His loving arms held open and his heart so full of love.[G]
Welcome home, s[C]on,
Iâve been prayin and been hopin and I never did give up.[G]
I [G]knew that youâd return to me, the place where you were meant to be,
Rest now, for youâve been gone too long.[C]
As th[C]ey embraced I heard him say, "Iâve waited so long fo[G]r this day
My s[D]on, my very own, welcome home.ä[G]
Verse 2
But a dreary rain was fallin while another soldier fell,
And a mother wakes up cryin in the night.
She thought sheâd heard him callin; 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 there glowing their hands reached out and touched
I knew that youâd return to me, the place where you were meant to be
Rest now, for youâve been gone too long
As they embraced I heard him say, ãIâve waited so long for this day
My son, my very own, welcome home.ä
Verse 3 (Opt. Raise to G# or A)
Now I think of all the famâlies thatâve lost a darling one
And I think how Jesus died for all our sins
And I think how much God loved us to send His only son
To live and die and then to live again.
Welcome home, son
I hope to hear God say to me when itâs my time to go
Welcome home,
While the angel band is playin and God comes to claim my soul
The angels will be singin and joy bells will be ringin
Rejoicing, Iâll shout and sing along
When there are no more wars to fight and weâre all children of the light
When the Father and the Son say ãWelcome home.ä
