Softly and Tenderly

G C G Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling, Em A7 D D7 Calling for you and for me. G C G Patient and loving He's waiting and watching; C D D7 G Watching for you and for me. Chorus: D7 G Come home, come home, D G A7 D D7 Ye who are weary come home; G C G Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling; C G D7 G Calling, "O sinner, come home!" Why should we linger when Jesus is pleading, Pleading for you and for me? Why should we wait, then, and heed not His mercies; Mercies for you and for me? 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.
