High School Students Beautifully Sing Christian Hymn ‘Softly And Tenderly’

The students of Canadian Christian high school Fountainview Academy present a soulful rendition of ‘Softly And Tenderly Jesus Is Calling.’


Their delicate voices were a feast for the ears. It was even made more beautiful by the accompaniment of the orchestra. Listening to it makes one eager to run to the arms of Jesus.

The music video was shot outdoors, where nature’s beautiful landscape made watching it relaxing. The singers’ wonderful harmony soothes and calms.

The lyrics of the song were about coming home to Him. The hymn speaks about the unconditional love He has for us–anyone can draw near to Him anytime.

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling—
Calling for you and for me;
Patiently Jesus is 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, O sinner, come home!

This song is a reminder that anyone can come home to Jesus’ loving arms anytime. Someone’s past or present struggles are not enough to make Him love him less. He is just patiently waiting, inviting everyone to come home.
