#247: Jesus Is Calling

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

Jesus is tenderly calling thee home –

Calling today, calling today;

Why from the sunshine of love wilt thou roam

Farther and farther away?

REFRAIN

Calling today (Calling, calling today, today)

Calling today (Calling, calling today, today);

Jesus is calling (Jesus is tenderly calling today),

Is tenderly calling today.

2

Jesus is calling the weary to rest –

Calling today, calling today;

Bring Him  hy burden and thou shalt be blest –

He will not turn thee away.

REFRAIN

3

Jesus is waiting, O 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, O list to His voice –

Hear Him today, hear Him today;

They who believe on His name shall rejoice –

Quickly arise and away.

REFRAIN
