Softly & Tenderly
      (by Will Thompson)

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

Chorus:

Come home, come home,
You 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?

Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing
Passing from you and from me
Shadows are gathering, deathbeds are coming
Coming for you and for me

Oh! 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
