"Softly and Tenderly" as written by and Will L. Thompson....
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
See on the portals He's waiting and watching Watching for you and for me
Come home, come home ye who are weary come home
Earnestly tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling oh sinners come home

Why should we linger when Jesus is pleading
He's pleading for you and for me
Why should we linger and heed not His mercy
Mercy for you and for me
Thought of the wonderful love He has promised Promised for you and for me
Though we have sinn'd He has mercy and pardon Pardon for you and for me
Come home, come home ye who are weary come home
Earnestly tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling oh sinners come home
