|Jesus Is Tenderly Calling||193|
|Fanny J. Crosby, 1820-1915||Geo. C. Stebbins, 1846-|
Jesus is tenderly calling thee home--Calling today, calling today;
Why from the sun-shine of love wilt thou roam Farther and farther away?
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.
Jesus is waiting, oh, come to him now-- Waiting today, waiting today ;
Come with thy sins, at his feet lowly bow; Come, and no longer delay.
Jesus is pleading, oh, list to his voice-- Hear him today, hear him today;
They who believe on his name shall rejoice; Quickly arise and away.
