More Than Two Hundred Years Ago
SETTING: Den Chief and 6 Cubs Scouts in uniform, carrying small American flags, line up on stage and each speaks his part.
DEN CHIEF: More than two hundred years ago, God gave us a great nation; A land of wealth and bounty, choice among His creation. We must protect its freedom and defend its worthy cause, and support our Constitution, which is based upon God's laws. Let's pledge to stand in loyalty throughout the coming year, and with God's help we can overcome any times of doubt or fear. If we will trust His leading and live our lives His way, God will bless America, as upon its founding day.
(To audience.) Please stand an join me in singing "God Bless America". (Audience stands, sings, and is seated)
CUB #1: Glad you came to our banquet,
We have many things to say,
About our love for our country,
As we celebrate today.
CUB #2: Independence is a big word,
And hard for me to say,
But I know it means a lot,
To all Americans today.
CUB #3: Our national bird is the eagle,
Have you ever wondered why?
It may be because it soars above,
All birds to reach the sky.
CUB #4: The Liberty Bell is ringing,
Though its sound we do not hear,
Of freedom of speech and worship,
Freedom from want and fear.
CUB #5: Without our flag of red, white, and blue,
Things would be different for me and you.
It's a symbol of pride in the American way,
So we should be loyal and true each day.
CUB #6: Please stand and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance.
