• “Men think lightly of sin; not only sinners, but the saints do not view it in its proper light. Sin is not a light thing in the sight of God. The Church of God is asleep.” – Mary Winslow

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 we begin to understand what the blood of Jesus does for us, we will testify to the power of His blood, and shall thus have power continually to overcome the enemy. It is blessed to note that the blood of Jesus is the purchase price of our full salvation. ‘Take heed…to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with His own blood’ (Acts 20:28)” – Carrie Judd Montgomery
