Invocation

Oh Lord, under Thy guidance, may the
Juniors of this Federation
Seek knowledge courageously,
Walk fearlessly
and live nobly
in Thy service

Junior Pledge

I pledge my loyalty
To the Junior Club Woman
By doing better than ever before
What work I have to do,
By being prompt, honest, courteous,
By living each day
Trying to accomplish something,
Not merely to exist.

A Collect for Women

By Mary Stuart
April 1904

Keep us, oh God, from pettiness;
Let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.
Let us be done with fault-finding
And leave off self-seeking.
May we put away all pretense
And meet each other face to face,
Without self-pity and without prejudice.
May we never be hasty in judgment
And always be generous.
Let us take time for all things;
Make us to grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action our better impulses,
Straightforward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize that it is
The little things that create difference,
That in the big things of life we are as one.
And may we strive to touch and to know
The great, common human heart of us all.
And, Oh Lord, God, let us forget not
To be Kind!
