Welcome stranger to our shores
Our hearts are open, our home is yours.
We fear those who advantage take
But you and yours are in a pitiful state.
Everything you had, is no more,
You are part of an army who came before.
Human history of misery through ages past
Has knocked at our door, and love has held fast.
Millions of asylum seekers hope for help,
In a wretched and fearful state;
Lives with plans and past hopes in tatters,
Throughout the world, you are scattered.
