The Pilgrim Pledge

IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN.

I pledge myself to help hold aloft the lamps

of civil and religious liberty lighted by the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock;

to recall and cherish their sacrifices

and struggles made by them for the common good;

to study  their lives, deeds, faith, courage and character,

and to draw inspiration therefrom; to emulate their spirit;

to be loyal to the flag and institutions of the country,

whose founding so greatly aided by their work and wisdom;

to do everything within my power to deserve and preserve the heritage; and in all things and in all ways to profit by the Pilgrim Example.
