Scouter's 23rd psalm

Recommended Posts

I recently attended a memorial service and

a version of the 23rd Psalm was read.

It began The Lord is my Scoutmaster ...

Does anyone have a copy of this.

Sorry to take so long. I believe I have seen it or something like it listed on the National Assocaition of United Methodist Scouters web page - www.NAUMS.org - anyway, you can find it inside the United Methodist Church web site listed under UMM (United Methodist Men).


Look around there. I think you'll find it.

The 23rd Psalm of Scouting


Scouting is my life, I shall not want;

It helps me to camp in green pastures,

and hike beside still waters;

It restores my soul.

It leads me in paths of learning,

for the sake of myself and others.

Yea, even though I walk through the valley

of the shadow of the Woodbadge staffer, I have no fear;

My patrol, my friends, are with me

Their wit and their smiles, they comfort me.

We have prepared tables in short time

at the insistence of staffers;

Scouting fills my head with knowledge, my brain overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me home tonight,

And I shall dwell in the house of Scouting forever.
