VanessaJoySoftly and Tenderly written by Will L. Thompson is a beautiful hymn that was recorded on the Sweet By and By album by Vanessa Joy. You can listen to the song for free in her store here or listen here on youtube. Below are the 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.
Come home, come home,
You who are weary, come home;
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
Calling, O sinner, come home!

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!
Though we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon,
Pardon for you and for me.
