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!
