Representative Text

1 Be loyal to the Master,
Who gave His life for you;
In peril and disaster,
Be faithful, brave and true.

Be loyal to Jesus;
Uphold His banner ev’rywhere;
Be loyal to Jesus;
Be strong in Him to do and dare;
When fierce the battle rages,
Just trust the God of ages;
Good service bring;
His glory sing;
Be loyal to your King.

2 Be loyal where He needs you,
Thro’ sunshine or thro’ rain;
And follow where He leads you,
In pleasure, or in pain. [Refrain]

3 Half-hearted measures scorning,
Stand steadfast in His might,
And help to bring the morning,
The day with vict’ry bright. [Refrain]

4 Be loyal, though around you,
The pow’rs of evil throng;
His angel guards surround you;
His strength shall be your song. [Refrain]
