Lyrics

Jesus is tenderly calling for thee,
Calling for thee, yes, calling for thee;
Listen and hear Him say, Follow thou Me,
Follow, yes, follow thou Me.

Refrain

Jesus is calling today,
Jesus is calling today;
Jesus is calling today,
Calling, yes, calling today.

Jesus is tenderly calling thee now,
Calling thee now, yes, calling thee now;
Waiting for thee in submission to bow,
Calling, yes, calling just now.

Refrain

Jesus is tenderly calling, O come!
Calling today, yes, calling today;
All who are weary and longing for home,
Jesus is calling today.
