Lyrics
SOFTLY AND TENDERLY
Words and Music by Will L. Thompson

(G)Softly and tenderly (C)Jesus is (C)call(G)ing,
(G)Calling for (A7)you and for (D7)me;
(G)See, on the portals He’s (C)waiting and (C/G)watch(G)ing,
(G/B)Watching (C)for (G/D)you and (D7)for (G)me.
Refrain
Come (D7)home, come (G/B)home(D)(G),
(D/A)You who are (E7)weary, (A7)come (D)home(A7/E)(D7/F#);
(G)Earnestly, tenderly, (C)Jesus is (C/G)call(G)ing,
(G/B)Calling, (C)O (G/D)sinner, (D7)come (G)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?
Refrain
Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing,
Passing from you and from me;
Shadows are gathering, deathbeds are coming,
Coming for you and for me.
Refrain
O 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.
