Jesus Is Calling

Representative Text

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]
