1 Hearing Thy gentle voice
Bidding me come,
Led by Thy loving hand
Still nearer home,
Kept by Thy grace so free,
Thus will I ever be
Loyal, dear Lord, to Thee,
Loyal to Thee.

Thou who dost care for me,
Give me more love for Thee,
So shall I ever be Loyal to Thee.

2 When foes are pressing hard
On ev’ry side,
Even the deepest sea
Thou wilt divide.
I shall pass over free,
Shouting the victory,
Loyal, dear Lord, to Thee,
Loyal to Thee. [Refrain]

3 While Thou shalt give me breath
My voice I'll raise,
To worship and adore
Thy wondrous ways.
Trusting alone in Thee,
Whate'er Thou sendest me,
Loyal, dear Lord, to Thee,
Loyal to Thee. [Refrain]
