Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
Patient and loving
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!"
Why should we linger when Jesus is pleading
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we wait, then, and heed not His mercies
Mercies for you and for me?
O 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
