COME HOME

(G) Softly and tenderly (C) Jesus is (G) calling,
(Em) Calling for (A7) you and for (D) me. (D7)
(G) Patient and loving He's (C) waiting and (G) watching,
(C) Watching for (D) you and (D7) for (G) me.

Chorus:
Come (D7) home, come (G) home.
(D) Ye who are (G) weary (A7) come (D) home. (D7) 
(G) Earnestly, tenderly (C) Jesus is (G) calling,
(C) Calling, oh (G) sinner (D7) come (D) home.

Why should we linger when Jesus is bleeding,
Bleeding for you and for me.
Though we have sinned He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me.

Chorus

Oh 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

(Often this last verse is not sung)
Time is now fleeting the moments are passing,
Passing from you and from me.
Shadows are gathering, dense night is coming,
Coming for you and for me.
