Softly and Tenderly

Verse 1

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
calling for you and for me;
At the heart’s 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 tary 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?

Verse 3

Think of 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.
