1 Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
calling for you and for me;
though we have sinned, he has mercy and pardon,
pardon for you and for me.
Come home, come home,
you who are weary, come home;
earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling,
calling, O sinner, come home!
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? (Refrain)
