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

 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, oh sinner, come home

Why should we tarry when
 Jesus is pleading  Pleading for you and for me
Why should we linger and
Head not His mercies  Mercies for you and for me

Oh! 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

[Chorus]

 Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
