Softly and tenderly Jesus is callin'
Callin' for you and for me
Patient and loving He's waitin' and watchin'
Watchin' for you and for me

Well come home, well come home, home
Ye who are weary come home
Earnestly, tenderly, my Jesus is calling
Well oh sinner, sinner, come on home

Earnestly, tenderly, my Jesus is callin'
Callin' for you and for me
Patient and loving cause He's waitin' and watchin'
Watchin' for you and for me

Well I say come home, well come home
Well ye who are weary please come home, come home
Well, earnestly, tenderly, my Jesus is callin'
Callin' oh sinner, come home
