Submitted by No Comment | 6,410 views




Watch this beautiful version of Carrie Underwood singing this popular hymn “Softly and Tenderly.” She performed this song sometime in November 2017 as part of the “In Memoriam” segment, which culminated in a tribute to the fifty-eight Route 91 shooting victims, at the 51st annual CMA Awards. Be blessed and feel free to share. God bless you.

Carrie Underwood rose to prominence after winning the fourth season of American Idol in 2005. Her debut single, “Inside Your Heaven,” made her the only country artist to debut at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the only solo country artist in the 2000s to have a number-one song on the Hot 100. Her debut album, Some Hearts (2005), was bolstered by the successful crossover singles “Jesus, Take the Wheel” and “Before He Cheats,” becoming the best-selling solo female debut album in country music history, the fastest-selling debut country album in Nielsen SoundScan history and the best-selling country album of the last 17 years. She won three Grammy Awards for the album, including Best New Artist. (Source: Wikipedia)

Softly and Tenderly 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
Ye who are weary
Come home
Earnestly, tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling “Oh 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

Come home
Come home
Ye who are weary
Come home
Earnestly, tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling “Oh sinner, come home”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

Come home
Come home
Ye who are weary
Come home
Earnestly, tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling “Oh sinner, come home”Come home
Ye who are weary
Come home
Earnestly, tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling “Oh sinner, come home”
