Calling My Children Home
Those lives were mine to love and cherish To guard and guide along life's way Oh God forbid that one should perish That one alas should go astray Back in the years with all together Around the place we'd romp and play So lonely now I oft' times wonder Oh will they come back home some day I'm lonesome for my precious children They live so far away Oh may they hear my calling, calling and come back home some day I gave my all for my dear children Their problems still with love I share, I'd brave life's storm, defy the tempest To bring them home from anywhere I lived my life my love I gave them, to guide them through this world of strife, I hope and pray we'll live together In that great glad here after life I'm lonesome for my precious children They live so far away Oh may they hear my calling, calling and come back home some day
