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

[CHORUS] (English):
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


Oh, pour le merveilleux amour qu'il a promis
Nous a promis, toi et moi
Et bien que nous pechions, Il nous offre son pardon
Pardon pour toi et our moi

[CHORUS] (French):
Reviens, reviens
Toi, qui te lasses reviens
Sincerement, tendrement, Jesus appelle
(T')Appelle, oh pecheur, reviens

[CHORUS] (English)
