Sixth Day – Loyal Responses – by Francis R. Havergal

True-Hearted, Whole-Hearted

I.
TRUE-HEARTED, whole-hearted, faithful and loyal,
King of our lives, by Thy grace we will be! Under Thy.standard, exalted and royal,
Strong in Thy strength, we will battle for Thee!
II.
True-hearted, whole-hearted! Fullest allegiance
Yielding henceforth to our glorious King;

Valiant endeavour and loving obedience
Freely and joyously now would we bring.

III.
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.
IV.
Whole-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.

V.
Half-hearted, false-hearted! Heed we the warning!
Only the whole can be perfectly true; Bring the whole offering, all timid thought scorning,
True-hearted only if whole-hearted too.
VI.
Half-hearted! Saviour, shall aught be withholden,
Giving Thee part who hast given us all?

Blessings outpouring, and promises golden
Pledging, with never reserve or recall.

VII.
Half-hearted I Master, shall any who know Thee Grudge Thee their lives, who hast laid down Thine own?
Nay; we would offer the hearts that we owe
Thee,—

Live for Thy love and Thy glory alone.
VIII.

Sisters, dear sisters, the call is resounding,
Will ye not echo the silver refrain, Mighty and sweet, and in gladness abounding,—
‘True-hearted, whole-hearted!’ ringing again?
IX.
Jesus is with us, His rest is before us,
Brightly His standard is waving above.

Brothers, dear brothers, in gathering chorus,
Peal out the watchword of courage and love 1

Peal out the watchword, and silence it never,
Song of our spirits, rejoicing and free!

‘True-hearted, whole-hearted, now and for ever, King of our lives, by Thy grace we will be !’

  • “When human reason has exhausted every possibility, the children can go to their Father and receive all they need.…For only when you have become utterly dependent upon prayer and faith, only when all human possibilities have been exhausted, can you begin to reckon that God will intervene and work His miracles.” – Basilea Schlink

Verse of the Day

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. — Matthew 5:11-12 (NKJV)
