411. Jesus Is Tenderly Calling

1 Jesus is tenderly calling you home–
Calling today, calling today;
Why from the sunshine of love wilt thou roam
Farther and farther away?

Calling today, Calling today,
Jesus is calling, is tenderly calling today.

2 Jesus is calling the weary to rest–
Calling today, calling today;
Bring Him thy burden and thou shalt be blest;
He will not turn thee away. [Refrain]

3 Jesus is waiting, O come to Him now–
Waiting today, waiting today,
Come with thy sins, at His feet lowly bow;
Come, and no longer delay. [Refrain]

4 Jesus is pleading, O list to His voice:
Hear Him today, hear Him today;
They who believe on His name shall rejoice;
Quickly arise and away. [Refrain]
