Softly and Tenderly

This song is by Jim Reeves and appears on the album Live at the Grand Ole Opry (1987).

(Spoken Introduction)
Now we'd like to settle things down just a bit
And sing one of favourite sacred songs
Tonight I've chosen one
That's long been a favourite of mine
And I hope it's one of your favourites
Softly and Tenderly

(Sang)
Softly and tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
See on the portal
He's watching and waiting
Waitin' for you and for me.

Come home
Come home
Ye who are wary
Come home
Ernestly, tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling, all sinners
Come home.

Come home
Come home
Ye who are wary
Come ho-o-ome
Ernestly, tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling, all sinners
Come home...
