(By Will L. Thompson)
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
Earnestly tenderly Jesus is calling, calling oh sinner come home
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
Come home come home...
