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?

Refrain:
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)
