697. Jesus Is Tenderly Calling

1 Jesus is tenderly calling thee home-
Calling today, calling today;
Why from the sunshine of love wilt thou roam
Farther and farther away?

Calling today,Calling today,
Jesus is calling,is tenderly calling today.

2 Jesus is calling the weary to rest-
Calling today, calling today;
Bring him thy burden and thou shalt be blest;
He will not turn thee away. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is waiting, O come to Him now-
Waiting today, waiting today;
Come with thy sins; at his feet lowly bow;
Come, and no longer delay. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is pleading; O list to his voice;
Hear him today, hear him today;
They who believe on his name shall rejoice;
Quickly arise and away. [Refrain]
