George Jones — Softly And Tenderly lyrics

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me,
See on the portal He's waiting and watching,
Watching for you and for me.

Come home, Come home.
Ye who are weary, come home,
Ernestly, tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling, all sinners come home.

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

Come home, Come home.
Ye who are wary come home,
Ernestly, tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling, all sinners come home.

Calling, all sinners come home...
