Full Text

Loyalty to Christ in all things,
Loyalty to Christ, loyalty to Christ,
Loyalty to Christ at all times,
Shall be our rule each day.

1 A tribute to the Christ we bring,
Of praises loyal hearts may sing;
An offering of incense sweet,
And purpose true for service meet.

Loyalty to Christ in all things,
Loyalty to Christ at all times,
Loyal, loyal, loyal, loyal,
Loyalty to Christ our King.

2 Christ’s people are his body true,
His blessed work we have to do;
He dies and lives in us each day,
And is the “life, the truth, the way.” [Refrain]

3 The sons of God his Spirit needs
To show “the things of Christ” in deeds,
“To keep our hearts,” to love the Lord,
And ever to obey his word. [Refrain]

4 O may each youthful Christian band
For Christ’s full truth with courage stand;
And pray, and serve, and teach, and give,
In loyalty to Christ to live. [Refrain]
