Jesus Is Tenderly Calling 193
Fanny J. Crosby, 1820-1915 Geo. C. Stebbins, 1846-
 

1.Jesus is tenderly calling thee home--Calling today, calling today;
Why from the sun-shine of love wilt thou roam Farther and farther away?
Refrain
Calling today! Calling today!
Jesus is calling, Is tenderly calling today.(Last verse: Amen.)
2.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.
Refrain
3.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.
Refrain
4.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.
Refrain
