Softly & Tenderly (Jesus Is Calling)
      (Will Thompson)

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you & for me
See, on your portals He's
      Waiting & watching
Watching for you & 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 & 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 & from me
Shadows are gathering
      Deathbeds & coming
Coming for you and for me

Oh! for the wonderful
      Love He has promised
Promised for you & for me
Though we have sinned
      He has mercy & pardon
Pardon for you and for me
