64. True-hearted, Whole-hearted

1 True-hearted, whole-hearted, 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, and silence it never,
Song of our spirits, rejoicing and free!
True-hearted, whole-hearted, now and forever,
King of our lives, by thy grace we will be!

2 True-hearted, whole-hearted! Fullest allegiance
Yielding henceforth to our glorious King;
Valiant endeavor and loving obedience
Freely and joyously now would we bring. [Refrain]

3 True-hearted! Saviour, thou knowest our story;
Weak are the hearts that we lay at thy feet,
Sinful and treacherous! yet, for thy glory,
Heal them, and cleanse them from sin and deceit. [Refrain]

4 True-hearted! Saviour, beloved and glorious,
Take thy great power, and reign thou alone,
Over our wills and affections victorious,
Freely surrendered, and wholly thine own. [Refrain]
