112. Lovingly, Tenderly Calling

1 Jesus, the loving Shepherd,
Calleth thee now to come
Into the fold of safety,
Where there is rest and room;
Come in the strength of manhood,
Come in the morn of youth,
Enter the fold of safety,
Enter the way of truth.

Refrain:
Lovingly, tenderly calling is he,
“Wanderer, wanderer, come unto me;”
Patiently waiting, there standing I see
Jesus, my Shepherd divine.

2 Jesus, the loving Shepherd,
Gave his dear life for thee;
Tenderly now he’s calling,
“Wanderer, come to me:”
Haste! for without is danger,
“Come,” cries the Shepherd blest;
Enter the fold of safety,
Enter the place of rest. [Refrain]

3 Lingering is but folly,
Wolves are abroad today,
Seeking the sheep who’re straying,
Seeking the lambs to slay;
Jesus, the loving Shepherd,
Calleth thee now to come;
Enter the fold of safety,
Where there is rest and room. [Refrain]
