Softly and tenderly


    • 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; 
    • you who are weary, come home! 
    • Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling, 
    • calling, O sinner, come home! 

    • 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? 

    • Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing, 
    • passing from you and from me; 
    • shadows are gathering, deathbeds are coming, 
    • coming for you and for me. 

    • Oh, for 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
