W:Silently each Scout should ask W:Have I done my daily task? W:Have I kept my honor bright? W:Can I guiltless sleep tonight? W:Have I done and have I dared W:Everything to be prepared? W: W:2) Listen Lord, oh listen Lord, W:As I whisper soft and low. W:Bless my mom and Bless my dad, W:These are things that they should know. W:I will keep my honor Bright, W:The oath and law will be my guide. W:And mom and dad this you should know, W:Deep in my heart I love you so. W: W:3) Quietly we join as one, W:Thanking God for Scouting fun, W:May we now go on our way. W:Thankful for another day. W:May we always love and share, W:Living in peace beyond compare, W:As Scouts may we find, W:Friendships true with all mankind. W: W:4) Quietly we now will part, W:Pledging ever in our heart, W:To strive to do our best each day, W:As we travel down life's way. W:Happiness we'll try to give, W:Trying a better life to live, W:Till all the world W:Be joined in love, W:Living in peace under skies above.
Note: The Boy Scout Vespers is a traditional song of the Boy Scouts of America. Vespers are typically sung at the conclusion of the day or service, such as at the end of a campfire service.
