Lyrics
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
