Softly And Tenderly
Recorded by Jim Reeves [3/4 time]
Written by Will L. Thompson

G                   C        G 
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Em          A7          D7
Calling for you and for me
G                      C            G
See on the portal He's watching and waiting
        C   G       D7  G  C G
Waiting for you and for me

     D7         G      Em
Come home  come home
A7                    D7
Ye who are weary come home
G                  C        G   
Earnestly tenderly Jesus is calling
Em      C G      D7   G    C G 
Calling o sinner come home
                          C        G
Why should we linger when Jesus is pleading
Em           A7          D7   
Pleading for you and for me
G                           C            G
Why should we wait then and heed not His mercies
        C   G       D7  G   C G
Mercies for you and for me

Repeat #2
                     C           G 
Oh for the wonderful love He has promised
Em           A7          D7 
Promised for you and for me
G                            C         G
Though we have sinned He has mercy and pardon
       C   G       D7  G   C G
Pardon for you and for me

Repeat #2
