YouTube Tuesday: Scout Vespers

on February 22, 2011 in campfire

Scout Vespers is a song sung by Boy Scouts and Scout Leaders to close a campfire program, to end a meeting, or to finish an evening on a camping trip. It is a great song that is beloved my millions. It holds a special place in the hearts of many Scouts and Scouters. But did you know there are three verses to the song?

Rhonda Kay recorded the song in 2009 on her cd titled Never Too Late. She also posted a video for the song on YouTube in November of that year. It can be watched at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxTH6lSDNZs , or by watching the clip below.

Do you think you can get the boys in your troop to learn all three verses?

      Our Troop only sings the first verse, but we discovered the other two (and possibly a fourth) during Scout Sunday this year. It was our closing song of the service, and was really neat to see an old Scouter in the congregation sining the first verse with his eyes closed. No doubt in my mind he was around some campfire as a young Scout for a moment there. Very touching moment.
