  • 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
    Ye who are weary
    Come home
    Earnestly, tenderly
    Jesus is calling
    Calling "Oh 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

    Come home
    Come home
    Ye who are weary
    Come home
    Earnestly, tenderly
    Jesus is calling
    Calling "Oh sinner, come home"

    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

    Come home
    Come home
    Ye who are weary
    Come home
    Earnestly, tenderly
    Jesus is calling
    Calling "Oh sinner..."

    Come home
    Come home
    Ye who are weary
    Come home
    Earnestly, tenderly
    Jesus is calling
    Calling "Oh sinner, come home"
