Softly and Tenderly

G                   C        G
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Em          A7          D    D7
Calling for you and for me.
G                       C           G
Patient and loving Hes waiting and watching;
C            D       D7    G
Watching for you and for me.


     D7	        G
Come home, come home,
D          G     A7   D     D7
Ye who are weary come home;
G                    C        G
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling;
C           G       D7   G
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?

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.
