Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling—
  Calling for you and for me;
Patiently Jesus is waiting and watching—
  Watching for you and for me!
  Come home! come home!
  Ye 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?
Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing—
  Passing from you and from me;
Shadows are gathering, death-beds are coming—
  Coming for you and for me!
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!

When weariness of the spirit and soul set in

That's the appropriate time to return to the feet of the cross to draw strength for the onward journey to eternity.

I am tired and almost fainted when the Holy Spirit whispered this song into my heart.

Come home! come home!

Ye who are weary, come home!

Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,

Calling, O sinner, come home!

I believe that this hymn isn't for sinners only, it's a strong words of encouragement to a Christian pilgrim who is getting tired and drained as a result of the temptations and tribulations on the way.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Jesus is indeed calling us home. I have been trying to recall this emotional hymn but I find it difficult to remember. But just this morning, when I was in bed sleeping, this song kept ringing in my dream. So I have to wake up and write the words... thank you Jesus for your salvation for us....

This is a clarion call for all believers indeed to go all out tell the sinners that JESUS is calling them to come with all their sins and receive the salvation of God

We need to ask for forgiveness from God because we have fallen short of His glory. May we receive mercies in Jesus Mighty name Amen. Shallom.

This song is very emotional for me. It tells how much God loves me and is tarrying for me to come to Him now just as I am. I surrendered my life to God many years ago, and just want to be at peace with Him. He’s truly a good, good father.

As I was going through this hymn this morning, I discovered that there is a home in Jesus.

I also remember my brother who went from home, also came back from his exile of wrong friends... When he left home all I could pray was God let him come home..

Make the world uncomfortable for him and bring him back home.. thank God today he is back home.

And as I went through the song I noticed there are so many out there today who needs to come home.

Please help me beg God to bring them home...

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling—

Calling for you and for me;

Patiently Jesus is waiting and watching—

Watching for you and for me!

I singing this hymn I was reminded of the Parable of the Father Receiving His Son in Luke 15: 11-32 Lord May many respond to Your calling. Thank You for Your love for us.
