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!

This song has been a source of inspiration to me. It drew me back to the LORD, in the times when I strayed through ignorance from HIS presence. Thank you for sharing this song through the HOLY SPIRIT.

I woke up dreaming of this song. I pray for the world to hear. But it seems silent lately. Open your ears and hear, peace must come worldwide.

Love this song so much, it keeps coming and coming, been trying to download the vocal but no success, just instruments, it touches the heart, melts the spirit and put me back on track. Plz help me with the vocal, really need it.
