Welcome Home  Dolly Parton

[G]With great anticipation[C] he waited [G]at the door
His only son was [D]due from ov[G]erseas
For months now hed been waiting since[C] hed gone off to[G] war
And his eyes were filled with [D]tears of great re[G]lief
Welcome [C]home son his loving arms held open and his heart so [G]full of love
Welcome [C]home son Ive been praying and been hoping and I never did [G]give up
I knew that youd return to me the place where you were meant to be
Rest now for youve been gone [C]too long
I heard him say as they embraced Ive [G]waited so long for this day
My [D]son my very own wel[G]come home
But a dreary rain was falling while a[C]nother sold[G]ier fell
And a mother wakes up [D]crying in the[G] night
She thought shed heard him calling in that [C]moment she coul[G]d tell
Her only son had [D]passed into the[G] light
Welcome [C]home son his loving arms held open and his heart so [G]full of love
Welcome [C]home son as Jesus stood there glowing their hands reached out a[G]nd touched
I knew that youd return to me the place that you were meant to be
Rest now for youve been gone [C]too long
As they embraced I heard him say Ive [G]waited so long for this day
My [D]son my very own wel[G]come home
Now I think of all the families thatve [C]lost a darl[G]ing one
And I think how Jesus [D]died for all [G]our sins
And I think how much God loved us to [C]send His on[G]ly Son
To live and die and [D]then to liv[G]e again
Welcome [C]home Son I hear God saying when they nail Christ to the cros[G]s that day
Welcome [C]home Son and when He sent His angels to roll that stone a[G]way
I knew that youd return to me the place where you were meant to be
Rest now for youve been gone [C]too long
I hear God say as they embrace Ive [G]waited so long for this day
Well [D]done my faithful Son wel[G]come home
Welcome [C]home I hope to hear God saying when its my time to [G]go
Welcome [C]home while the angel band is playing and God comes to claim my [G]soul
The angels will be singing and joy bells will be ringing
Rejoicing Ill shout and sing [C]along
When there are no more wars to fight and [G]were all children of the light
When the [D]Father and the Son say wel[G]come home
