Another great slow song, this is popular to sing both in troop meetings, ceremonies, and at camp. We didn’t sing it so much at camp since, although it was Girl Scout camp, not every girl that attended was actually a Girl Scout. Many included their registration fees in their fees to attend camp, but never bothered to join troops in their local areas. I think they’re missing out by doing this, but at least they’re at camp!
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 up 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 anyone, then I’ve helped me,
If I’ve opened up my eyes to see.
I’ve tucked away a song or two,
When your feeling low, there’s one for you,
If you need a friend, then I will come,
And there’s so many more where I come from.
Come with me where a fire burns bright,
We can even see better by candle’s light,
We can find more meaning in a campfire’s glow
Than we ever learned in a year or so.
We’ve made a promise to always keep,
And we pray night falls before we sleep.
We’ll be Girl Scouts together and when we’re gone,
We’ll still be trying and a singing this song.
