Scout Vespers

One of the most beautiful scouting related songs, this is an excellent way to end a Campfire Ceremony, or a Scouts Own Service.

Scout Vespers
(To the Tune of Tannebaum or Oh Christmas Tree.)
Softly falls the light of day,
While our campfire fades away.
Silently each Scout should ask
Have I done my daily task?
Have I kept my honor bright?
Can I guiltless sleep tonight?
Have I done and have I dared
Everything to be prepared?

Listen Lord, oh listen Lord,
As I whisper soft and low.
Bless my mom and Bless my dad,
These are things that they should know.
I will keep my honor Bright,
The oath and law will be my guide.
And mom and dad this you should know,
Deep in my heart I love you so.
