We Have Entered Royal Service


We have entered royal service, pledged our utmost power,
We have made our vows unto the Lord;
His commands we heed with gladness, ev’ry day and hour,
We have made our vows unto the Lord.

Refrain:
Let us pay our vows unto the Lord,
We have made our vows unto the Lord;
Now, in the presence of His people,
We have made our vows unto the Lord.

There are words of praise and honor we are pledged to speak,
We have made our vows unto the Lord;
Tho’ our speech be slow and stamm’ring, and our hearts e weak,
We have made our vows unto the Lord. [Refrain]

There is light we must be seeking in His holy word,
We have made our vows unto the Lord;
There are hidden words of comfort that we have not heard,
We have made our vows unto the Lord. [Refrain]

Oh, joy of loyal service, oh, the tender grace,
When we pay our vows unto the Lord!
We shall walk in white before Him, see His loving face,
If we pay our vows unto the Lord. [Refrain]
