lyrics

All my little children this is a call to come home
Come home from the hurt and the harm and the lies, come home
Come home from the wounds and the wars and the scars, come home
Come home, little children, you've gone so far, so come home
All of the time I'm right behind where you are, turn around
I took on nails in my hands and my feet, so come home
I'm drawing you now with a love so sweet so come home
They covered my head with a crown of thorns so come home
How often I wanted in my arms to carry you home

Come little children
Now is the day
My little children
Why do you wait?
peace little children
Now you are safe... now you are safe

I dressed you up in silver and gold at home
All of my love became old to you so you left home
You shared your love under foreign sheets far from home
You spread your fountains out on the streets far from home
Your lovers enslaved you and took you away from your home
They wanted to sell you but nobody wanted used up you
When I walked by I was on my way back home
For the highest price I bought you back to come home
The price I paid was my own lifeblood so come home
