Lyrics

From over hill and plain
There comes the signal strain,
’Tis loyalty, loyalty, loyalty to Christ;
Its music rolls along,
The hills take up the song,
Of loyalty, loyalty, yes, loyalty to Christ.

Refrain

On to victory! On to victory!
Cries our great commander, On!
We’ll move at His command,
We’ll soon possess the land,
Through loyalty, loyalty,
Yes, loyalty to Christ.

O hear, ye brave, the sound
That moves the earth around,
’Tis loyalty, loyalty, loyalty to Christ;
Arise to dare and do,
Ring out the watchword true,
Of loyalty, loyalty, yes, loyalty to Christ.

Refrain

Come, join our loyal throng,
We’ll rout the giant wrong,
’Tis loyalty, loyalty, loyalty to Christ;
Where Satan’s banners float
We’ll send the bugle note,
Of loyalty, loyalty, yes, loyalty to Christ.

Refrain

The strength of youth we lay
At Jesus’ feet today,
’Tis loyalty, loyalty, loyalty to Christ;
His Gospel we’ll proclaim,
Throughout the world’s domain,
Of loyalty, loyalty, yes, loyalty to Christ.
