Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling




Softly and tenderly
Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me;
See, on the portals
He's waiting and watching,
Watching for you and for me.

Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly,
Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!



Why should we tarry
when Jesus is pleading,
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we linger
and heed not His mercies,
Mercies for you and for me?

Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly,
Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!



Time is now fleeting,
the moments are passing,
Passing for you and for me.
Shadows are gathering,
death's night is coming,
Coming for you and for me.

Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly,
Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!



O for the wonderful love
He has promised,
Promised for you and for me!
Though we have sinned,
He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me.

Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly,
Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!
