Sunday Songs on Monday again.
Immigrant’s Song from Getty Music.
Every citizen of the kingdom of God is an alien, a stranger, and a refugee (a former enemy) who has been welcomed in.
It is why Christians identify with the plight of the displaced and sojourners.

The lyrics:
1.
I was a stranger
On the outside looking in
Beyond all favor
I was wandering
She was a mother
But no one to call her own
This lowly stranger
Could never disown
Bridge 1.
I said
Let me come with you we don’t have to be alone
I said
Let me come with you I will make your home my home
Chorus.
Home
I am moving on
Hope
When all hope seemed gone
Where you are is where I belong
Our home so far from home
2.
There at the edges
Just a little grace to glean
He turned His head then
I found everything
Bridge 2.
He said
come with me you don’t have to be alone
He said
come with me I will build for us a home
Chorus.
Bridge 3.
I will rest in you beloved
Hide beneath the shadow of your wings
3.
He’s our Redeemer
I laid down at His feet
He spread a cover of mercy over me
A moment of changing
I was not what I would be
Bound to Him
Then I am truly free
Bridge 4.
He said
come with me you don’t have to be alone
He said
come with me I will build for us a home
Chorus.
Final Chorus ending.
In our home so far from home
