Softly And Tenderly
Verse 1: 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.
Chorus: 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.
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.
Verse 4: O 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.
