From Loyal veins my life I drew,
In Loyal arms I lay,
From Loyal Lips that Lessons new,
That led me day by day,
And hearts to rest in Loyal Breast,
And rocked on Loyal knee,
They wore and grew and thank God too,
A Loyal Heart in me.
Then came the day for all to view,
When scorn and lies held sway,
Those evil men with no virtue,
They swore my life away,
But for dare or ill I am Loyal Still,
They never can decree,
To force retreat or stop the beat,
The Loyal Heart in me.
At times I sigh at times I rest,
Amid Scenes and faces strange,
The passing years have in my breast,
Brought little or no change,
Memories of old ever bright I hold,
Since rocked on Loyal knee,
And for her sake no jail will break,
This Loyal Heart in me.
