The Spirit Lives


By: G.K. Sammy

The Spirit lives, there is no doubt,
Within the heart of every Scout,

The hope lives on, the dreams survive,
The Scouting spirit is alive!

In England, many years ago,
There lived a man who sought to sow

The seeds of brotherhood of man,
And there the spirit first began

The Scouting spirit spread about
To nations east, west, north and south,

And soon, on every land and shore,
Young men were taught the Scouting Law.

We camped and learned of nature's ways,
We gloried in our youthful days,

We ventured where all others feared,
Because we knew we were prepared.

The world has changed as years went by,
Society's values went awry,

And many ask, "What is the worth
of Scouting on this wretched earth?"

But each new Scout who learns our law
Brings with him hope, and much, much more;

Each generation of Scouts gives
The proof that Scouting's spirit lives.

The treasured valves of the past
Still guide Scouts of today, they last

In spite of changes that we see
Around us in society

And still, adventures filled with fun
Await today's Scouts, every one,

In them that spirit, born of old
May yet transform this sorry world.

And so we say without a doubt,
That in the heart of every Scout

The hope lives on, the dreams survive,
The Scouting spirit is alive!
