Softly and Tenderly


Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling 
Calling for you and for me;
Patiently Jesus is 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?

Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing 
Passing from you and from me;
Shadows are gathering, death-beds 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!
