Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling calling for you and for me

See on the portals 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 oh sinners come home

Why should we linger when Jesus is pleading he's pleading for you and for me

Why should we linger and heed not his mercy mercy for you and for me

Thought of the wonderful love he has promised promised for you and for me

Though we have sinn'd he has mercy and pardon pardon for you and for me

Come home come home...
