12238. Loyal Be

1 O the world in sin is dying, loyal be;
Go you forth today in Jesus’ name;
All the evil hosts defying, loyal be,
And His peace and liberty proclaim!

Loyal be to the Lord,
Strive to banish sin and woe;
Loyal be, send the Word,
Till the world His love shall know.

2 Countless laborers He is needing, loyal be;
For the grain is unto harvest white;
Let Him not in vain be pleading, loyal be,
Gladly toil for Him until the night. [Refrain]

3 Think how Jesus died to save you, loyal be;
How He bids you others’ burdens bear;
Let not worldly cares enslave you, loyal be;
Seek the lost ones, and your blessings share. [Refrain]

4 Whatsoever may oppose you, loyal be;
Boldly do your duty, never fear;
Looking unto Him who chose you, loyal be;
For to bless and keep, He’s ever near. [Refrain]
