Softly And Tenderly

This song is by Merle Haggard and appears on the album Songs For The Mama That Tried (1981).

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
See on the 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, oh sinners come home

Why should we linger when Jesus is pleading
He's pleading for you and for me
Why should we linger and heed not his mercy
Mercy for you and for me

Thought of the wonderful love he has promised
Promised for you and for me
Though we have sinn'd 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, oh sinners come home
