1 Jesus is tenderly calling for thee,
Waiting and longing thy comfort to be.
Lovingly now He is saying to thee,
“Come and find mercy in me.”
Jesus is tenderly calling for thee,
Jesus is calling for thee.
2 That He might win thee He shed His own blood,
Come to this fountain, oh, bathe in the flood.
Come while the slain One is saying to thee,
“Come, sinner, come unto me.” [Refrain]
3 Wander no longer in darkness, we pray,
Come to the Savior, oh, make no delay.
Jesus is saying this moment to thee,
“Come, weary one, unto me.” [Refrain]
4 Come from the darkness of sin into light,
Come to the Shepherd who leadeth aright.
Come to the fountain now open and free,
Jesus is calling for thee. [Refrain]
