GEC English Hymn

English Hymn 83

STANZA 1
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.

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

STANZA 2
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?

STANZA 3
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 .

STANZA 4
Oh! For the wonderful love
He has promised,
Promised for you and for me;
Tho’ we have sin’d
He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me.
