Representative Text

1 Jesus is tenderly calling for thee,
Calling for thee, yes, calling for thee;
Listen and hear Him say, "Follow thou Me,
Follow, yes, follow thou Me."

Jesus is calling today,
Jesus is calling today;
Jesus is calling today,
Calling, yes, calling today.

2 Jesus is tenderly calling thee now,
Calling thee now, yes, calling thee now;
Waiting for thee in submission to bow,
Calling, yes, calling just now. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is tenderly calling, O come!
Calling today, yes, calling today;
All who are weary and longing for home,
Jesus is calling today. [Refrain]
