USSSP: A Scout's Duty to God and Country - Graces and Prayers from the Scouts of Mexico


Gazelle Prayer:

My Lord, teach me how to be

humble in my person

to value your example

to serve you with love and

to find the way

that going to take me before you.

Oracion de la Gacela

Senor, ensename a ser

humilde en mi persona

a valorar tu ejemplo

a servirte con amor y

a encontrar el camino

que me ha de conducir

ante ti

Wolf Cub Prayer

Sweet and Good Lord of mine:

teach me to be humble and kind

to do what yo do

to love you with all my heart and

to follow the way that going to

take me before you.

Oracion del Lobato

Dulce y buen Senor mio:

Ensename a ser humilde y bondadoso

A imitar tu ejemplo

A amarte con todo mi corazon y

A seguir el camino que me

ha de llevar junto a ti.

Scouts Prayer:

My Lord:

Teach me to be kind

to serve you as you deserve it

to give without measure

to fight without fear to be wounded

to work without rest and

to not to look another reward but

knowing that I'm doing your will


Oracion Scout


Ensename a ser generoso

A servirte como lo mereces

A dar sin medida

A combatir sin temor a que me hieran

A trabajar sin descanso y

A no buscar mas recompensa que

el saber que hago tu voluntad.

Asi sea

Expeditionaries Prayer

My Lord:

Help me to find the strenght from the old oak tree

so no success makes me feel vane

The happiness from nature

so no lonelyness makes me feel bad

The freedom from a bird

to follow my own way

And the volition of the Expeditionary

To go always ahead, and serve to others


Oracion del Expedicionario:


Ayudame a encontrar la fortaleza del viejo roble

para que ningun triunfo me envanezca

La alegria de la Naturaleza

para que ninguna soledad me abata

La libertad del ave

para seguir mi camino

Y la voluntad del expedicionario

para seguir siempre adelante y servir

Asi sea.

Rover's Prayer

Give me Oh Lord:

A vigilant heart

so no vane thought keep me away from you

A noble heart

so no unworthy affection overcome me

A straight heart

so no evilness deviate it

A strong heart

so no passion may enslave it

A generous heart

To serve


Oracion del Rover

Dame, Oh Senor:

Un corazon vigilante

que ningun pensamiento vano aleje

Un corazon noble (de ti)

que ningun afecto indigno rebaje

Un corazon recto

que ninguna maldad desvie

Un corazon fuerte

que ninguna pasion esclavice

Un corazon generoso

Para servir

Asi sea

Before meals

Oh Lord:

You give the water to the fields

you give the soil to the plants

you give the fruit to the men

give us blessed these meals

so turned into fortitude

we may serve you well

Oracion de los Alimentos


Tu que das el agua a los campos

La tierra a las plantas

El fruto a los hombres

danos bendito este alimento

para que vuelto fortaleza

te podamos servir mejor


Before starting the campfire:

May the flames raise to the sky

and along with them the hearts of the mortals

may the glow of its redhot coals

fill the world of love, light and happiness

and may the Lord bless tonight

to those gathered here around it.

Antes de iniciar la Fogata:

Que las llamas se levanten hasta el cielo

y con ellas el corazon de los mortales

que el crepitar de sus candentes brasas

llenen al mundo de amor, luz y alegria

y que el Senor bendiga esta noche

a quienes estamos reunidos en torno a ella.


My Lord and Leader:

whom no matter my weakness

has choose me as leader and guardian

of my Scouts brothers,

may my words and examples

light their way by the path of your law

may I show them your divine footstep

on the Nature you create,

teach them what I have to and

lead them from stage to stage

to You, My Lord,

at the campground of the joy and rest

where you have set your tent

and ours for the eternity.


Senor y Jefe Mio:

Que a pesar de mis debilidades

Me has escogido como jefe y guardian

de mis hermanos Scouts

haz que mis palabras y mis ejemplos

iluminen su camino por el sendero de Tu

que sepa mostrarles tu huella divina

en la Naturaleza que has creado

ensenarles lo que debo

y conducirlos de etapa en etapa

hasta ti Senor Mio

en el campo del reposo y la dicha

donde haz establecido tu tienda y la nuestra

para la eternidad.

Asi sea
