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

Sabbath Rest – What Grace is Mine

We went to church this morning. Let me say that again – we went INTO a church this morning! For the first time since mid-March. With masks and every other pew and toothpicks in the communion bread – it was soul feeding, heart refreshing, jubilation! While we have been thankful to be able to worship at McLean Bible Church in Washington, DC thanks to the miracle of live streaming, being able to lift our voices with other believers (whom we are also blessed to call friends) and partake in communion (even with paper cups and toothpicks) was a huge blessing.  Huge.  May we never take for granted the gathering together of the faithful.

We sang this song this morning. Not quite like Kristyn Getty does, but it still stirred my soul! May you be blessed also!


What grace is mine
That He who dwells in endless light
Called through the night
To find my distant soul
And from His scars
Poured mercy that would plead for me
That I might live, and in His name be known
So I will go wherever He is calling me
I lose my life to find my life in Him
I give my all to gain the hope that never dies
I bow my heart, take up my cross and follow Him

What grace is mine
To know His breath alive in me
Beneath His wings
My waking soul may soar
All fear can flee for death’s dark night is overcome
My Savior lives and reigns forever more
So I will go wherever He is calling me
I lose my life to find my life in Him
I give my all to gain a hope that never dies
I bow my heart, take up my cross and follow Him
I bow my heart, take up my cross and follow Him
