The Scout Hymm

(Published by the Boy Scouts Association, 25, Buckingham Palace Road, London. SW1)

Now as I start upon my chosen way In all I do, my thoughts, my work, my play. Grant as I promise, courage, Lord for me, To be the best, the best that I can be.

Help me to keep my honour shining bright May I be Loyal in the hardest fight Let me be able for my Task, and then To earn a place among my fellow men.

Open mine eyes to see things as I should That I may do my dairy turn of good Let me be ready, waiting for each need To keep me clean in thought and word and deed

So as I journey on my chosen way In all I do, my thought, my work, my play Grant as I promise, Courage new for me To be the best, the BEST that I can be.
