1. Put a light in the window, your brother's coming gome.
Set a meal on the table your brother's coming home.
He'll be tired and weary after all these years alone.
He's coming home, your brother's coming home.

2. Take the chain from the door, your sister's coming home.
Open wide your arms your sister's coming home.
Don't leave her standing there after all the pain she's known,
She's coming home, your sister's coming home.

Comin' home to a place they've never been
Comin' home to a land theyve never seen
Comin' home to a family they have never known
All Jock Tamson's bairns are coming home

3. He's been angry and afraid, your father's coming home.
He's been hounded and betrayed, your father's coming home,
and with every act of kindness, a seed of hope is sown,
He's coming home, your father's coming home.

4 Take her in from the cold, your mother's coming home.
sit her down by the fire, your mother's coming home.
Make her warm, make her welcome before the chance is gone.
She's coming home, your mother's coming home.

5. From war torn Lebanon your family's coming home.
and from Palestine and Turkey, your family's coming home.
Seeking rest and refuge they have neve known.
They're coming home, your family's coming home.
