Sabbath Rest – Softly and Tenderly Jesus is Calling

With so much “noise” coming at us, how hard it seems these days to hear the soft and tender voice of Jesus.  Yet He continues to call……

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
See, on your 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 O sinner come home

Oh! For the wonderful love He has promised
Promised for you and for me
Tho’ we have sinned 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 O sinner come home

Gently He leads those who carry their young ones
Shepherd for you and for me
Surely His goodness and mercy will follow
Ever with you and with me

Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling
Calling O sinner come home
Calling O sinner come home
