Come, my children

© Clare Allsop 2000

Come, my children, your Father I am,

I've been waiting to welcome you home,

For so long, I've loved you, all along,

And I'm waiting now so come.

And I welcome you into my heart,

And I welcome you into my arms,

And I'm calling you to come home again;

My child I want you to know my love for you.

You've been crying and I know your tears,

I've been sighing for you all these years;

Let me hold you, let me take your hand,

Let me show, I understand. And I welcome you…

Don't be worried, whatever you've done,

For I will forgive you, I gave you my son,

Now the gates of heaven are open wide,

And I'm calling you inside. And I welcome you…
