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!

God woke me up this morning with this glorious song. It is very soothing and refreshing for the mind, body and spirit. I entered into worship with this song and it was truly a blessing.

Confess Master Jesus and believe His death is effective to save and His Resurrection brings righteousness. Answer His call by Paul's gospel, and repent toward Christ. :^D Let all of *us* know we *are* going home, indeed, by *His* faithfulness to get all our Father chose to give to Him.

For sure Jesus is calling for the souls that have gone astray from His ways. Let us cling on His cross for the Calvary blood is still wet and it will wash away all our sinful nature and will give rise to the immortal spirit! Blessed!
