Songs

Yes Scouts can SING !! Here are some songs you should know.

Scout Vesper

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,
There is something they should know.
I have kept my honor bright.
The Oath and Law has been my guide.
Mom and Dad, this you should know,
Deep in my heart I love you so.

TAPS

Day is done, gone the sun;         
From the lake, from the hills,     
From the sky;                      
All is well, safely rest,          
God is nigh.      
 

 

Philmont Hymn

Composed by John Westfall - Sung by the U.S. Air Force Academy Chorale

If you've been there, this song is guaranteed to give you chills and help you recall fond memories.

Silver on the sage,
Starlit skies above,
Aspen covered hills,
Country that I love.
Philmont here's to thee,
Scouting Paradise,
Out in God's country, tonight

Wind in whispering pines,
Eagles soaring high,
Purple mountains rise,
Against an azure sky.
Philmont here's to thee,
Scouting Paradise,
Out in God's country Tonight.
