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.

Chorus:
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.

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. (Chorus)

3 True-hearted, whole-hearted, Savior all-glorious!
Take Thy great power and reign Thou alone,
Over our wills and affections victorious,
Freely surrendered and wholly Thine own. (Chorus)
