Wade Bowen - Softly And Tenderly Lyrics




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
You who are weary, come home
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling
Calling, O sinner, 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
You who are weary, come home
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling
Calling, O sinner, come home

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

Come home, come home
You 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!
Though we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon
Pardon for you and for me

Come home, come home
You who are weary, come home
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling
Calling, O sinner, come home

    1 of my favorites, I intend for this to be sung at my funeral.

    The entire album by Wade Bowen "Songs for my Mother" has already been requested at my deathbed and beyond. I'm young (ish) with no health issues, but this is what I want to hear when I go.
