ANOTHER CHILD'S COMING HOME

Chris Allman 

Are you tired? Are you worn?
Is that road longer than you thought it was before?
Turn around, you’ve gone far enough.
There’s still room for you to come and stay with us.

Kill the fatted calf. Grab the finest robe.
Get a ring for my child because he’s coming home.
Get his room prepared because I know he’s tired
And when he gets here, I'm sure he’ll want to rest a while.
And if you need me, I’ll be out in the road
Because another child’s coming home!

Are you scared? Have you been sad?
Has someone told you I would never take you back?
Son, you know the truth. You don’t have to guess.
I’ve been waiting right here for you since the day you left.

Kill the fatted calf. Grab the finest robe.
Get a ring for my child because he’s coming home.
Get his room prepared because I know he’s tired
And when he gets here, I'm sure he’ll want to rest a while.
And if you need me, I’ll be out in the road
Because another child’s coming home!

Don’t be mad at him! No need to say a word.
He’s sorry for his sin, his lesson has been learned.
I love you all the same; in your heart, you know that’s true.
If it were you out in the rain, I would be waiting for you.

So go kill the fatted calf. Grab the finest robe.
Get a ring for my child because he’s coming home.
Get his room prepared because I know he’s tired
And when he gets here, I'm sure he’ll want to rest a while.
And if you need me, I’ll be out in the road
Because another child’s coming home!
