Rise Up O Flame

This is a great song to sing at any camp out as the fire is being lit.  It’s a great song to be sung in the round, and we usually just cut it off once the fire was nice and roaring.  There was a superstition I was told about as a young scout that if you didn’t sing the song, you’d have problems lighting the fire.

Rise up, O Flame by thy light glowing,
Show to us beauty, vision and joy.

  1. Ha. At Seven Hills in Holland NY, we were told that singing this meant we’d never get the fire lit – it was a “banned” song!

  2. Ha, it was our good luck charm!
