Religious Music – Softly And Tenderly lyrics

Verse #1
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me;
See, on your 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 O sinner come home.

Verse #2
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?
Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling O sinner come home.

Verse #3
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.
Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling O sinner come home.

Verse #4
Oh! 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.
Come home, come home,
Ye who are weary come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling O sinner come home.
