Elvis Presley - "Softly Tenderly" lyrics

Softly and tenderly jesus is calling,

Calling for you and for me.
Patient and loving hes waiting and watching;

Watching for you and for me.

Chorus:
Come home, come home,

Ye who are weary come home;

Earnestly, tenderly, jesus is calling;

Calling, "o sinner, come home!"

Repeat chorus

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'

Repeat chorus

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.

Repeat chorus
