'Softly And Tenderly' The Martins Sing Classic Hymn

The talented voices of The Martins lead us in worship with ‘Softly And Tenderly.’


This iconic hymn will remind you that God is always there with His arms wide open for us.

“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, ‘O sinner come home’”

The Martins are comprised of siblings Joyce Martin Sanders, Jonathan Martin, and Judy Martin Hess. For years, they’ve been using their God-given talent to sing praises to His Name. Today, they’re taking on a classic with ‘Softly and Tenderly.’

This beloved hymn is from the 19th century and it was written by Will Lamartine Thompson. He was a composer of gospel, secular, and patriotic songs. But, when his songs were rejected by publishers of his day, he decided to form his own music publishing company. And this hymn truly stands out as one of the greatest of all time.

Over the decades, ‘Softly and Tenderly’ has been recorded by numerous artists. Each rendition is special and unique, just like this performance from The Martins.

As you listen to the iconic words, you can feel the love of the Lord wash over you with peace and comfort.
