On My Honor




On my honor, I will try.

There’s a duty to be done, and I say, ‘aye.’

There’s a reason here for a reason above.

My honor is to try, and my duty is to love.


People don’t need to know my name;

If  I’ve done any harm, then I’m to blame.

If  I’ve helped another, then I’ve helped me,

And I’ve opened up my eyes to see.


I’ve tucked away a song or two.

If you’re feeling low, there’s one for you.

If you need a friend, then I will come,

And there’s plenty more where I come from.


Come with me where the fire burns bright.

We can even see better in the candlelight,

But we’ll find more meaning in a campfire glow

Than we’ve learned in a year or so.


We’ve made a promise to always keep,

And pray “Softly Falls” before we sleep.

We’ll be Girl Scouts together and when we’re gone,

We’ll still be trying and singing this song.
