"Welcome Home" as written by and John R. Mandeville....
I was taken back when you took me in
Just to wipe my tears away.
You made no demands; chose not to blame,
Though I knew you had the right to.
And I saw the years I wasted;
Searching everywhere in vain.
Finding nothing to believe in,
Until I finally heard you say

Welcome home
My mercy's waiting.
Welcome home
To open arms.
There's no shame in your returning;
Though you may have wondered far,
Welcome home.

That was years ago; so far away,
At an altar on my knees.
But I can still recall, like yesterday
How your love forever changed me.
Oh I see how you've been faithful,
Though I often caused you pain.
And I've learned you won't forsake me
When I need to hear you say

Welcome home
My mercy's waiting.
Welcome home
To open arms.
There's no shame in your returning;
Though you may have wondered far,
Welcome home.
