E R. Havergal

TRUE-HEARTED, wholehearted, faithful and loyal,

King of our lives, by Thy grace we will be!

Under the standard exalted and royal,

Strong in Thy strength we will battle for Thee.

Peal out the watchword! Silence it never,

Song of our spirits rejoicing and free;

Peal out the watchword! Loyal forever,

King of our lives, by Thy grace we will be.


True-hearted, wholehearted, fullest allegiance

Yielding henceforth to our glorious King;

Valiant endeavor and loving obedience

Freely and joyously now we would bring.


True-hearted, wholehearted, Saviour all-glorious!

Take Thy great power and reign there alone,

Over our wills and affections victorious,

Freely surrendered and wholly Thine own.
