SOFTLY AND TENDERLY
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me;
Patient and loving, He’s 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 linger when Jesus is pleading
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we wait, then, and heed not His mercies,
Mercies for you and for me?
O for the wonderful love He has promised,
Promised for you and for me;
Tho’ we have sinned He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me.
