Softly & Tenderly Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: Unearthed

Softly and Tenderly
Lyrics for Album: My Mother's Hymn Book
(Rebecca Lynn Howard)

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

Come home,come home
Ye who are weary,come home
Earnestly,tenderly,Jesus is calling
Calling,O sinner,come home

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

Come home,come home
Ye who are weary,come home
Earnestly,tenderly,Jesus is calling
Calling,O sinner,come home

Calling,O sinner,come home

Thank you so much for these lyrics. They just don't make good songs like these anymore & or singers like Johnny Cash. I play guitar & love learning these old songs. Thanks again for this.
