272. Jesus Is Tenderly Calling You Home

1 Jesus is tenderly calling you home,
Calling today, calling today,
Why from the sunshine of love will you 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 your burden and you shall be blest;
He will not turn you away. (Refrain)

3 Jesus is waiting, O come to Him now,
Waiting today, waiting today,
Come with your 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)
