Softly And Tenderly - Hugh P & Maria


I hope you are having wonderful Sunday!


According to the website Timeless Truths, the old hymn Softly and Tenderly was first published in 1880—but like so many of those old hymns—there is a gentle truth that clearly resonates from it.

This version (as found in the video below) is by a father and daughter duo, Hugh P. and Maria Doherty, from Donegal, Ireland.

Maria is a beautiful young woman and sings with a soft, but powerful spirit—with a lovely wisp of an Irish brogue—and is accompanied by her awesome Da' on guitar and vocal harmonies.

It's my prayer that you will be Blessed by their music and feel the Lord Jesus gently calling you to turn to him!

The lyrics are posted just below the video.

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,
       You who are weary, come home;
        Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,
        Calling, O 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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

May God Richly Bless you! 

Jesus is LORD!

Seek Him!


9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
