Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling Lyrics


Christian Lyrics

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling Lyrics
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!
