343. Jesus Is Tenderly Calling Thee Home

1 Jesus is tenderly calling thee 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]
