O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Softly And Tenderly. 11. 7. 11. 7. with Refrain

Lyrics
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling for you and for me;
See on the portals He's waiting and watching
Watching for you and for me.

Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading,
Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we linger and heed not His mercies,
Mercies for you and for me.

Oh, for the wonderful love He has promised,
Promised for you and for me;
Tho' we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me.

Chorus:
Come home, Come home, Ye who are weary, come home,
Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner come home!
