"Softly and Tenderly" as written by Josh Turner, Traditional, and Frank Rogers....
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
Patient and loving he's waiting and watching
Watching for you and for me

[Chorus: x2]
Come home, come home
Ye who are weary, come home
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling
Calling, "O sinner, come home!"

Why should we linger when Jesus is pleading
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we wait, then, and heed not His mercies
Mercies for you and for me?

[Chorus]

O for the wonderful love He has promised
Promised for you and for me
Though we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon
Pardon for you and for me

[Chorus]
