Her AHG Journey Has Just Begun

Before you is the arch, a place for memories,
It represents your journey while in AHG.
The Pathfinder takes a few steps and hears
The oath that she will say for many years.
She has so much ahead of her to learn,
She is excited that it is finally her turn.
Faith, Service, Family and Fun,
Her AHG journey has just begun.

And now a year older as a Tenderheart she will tread,
She receives her special vest of red.
She lights a candle in the dark
It seems like such a tiny spark.
She sees 10 creed stones along the way
She learns about them through fun and play.
Integrity is a central part,
There is so much to learn as a Tenderheart!
Respectfulness and purity
are ways she learns about integrity.
Faith, Service, Family and Fun,
Her AHG journey has begun.

She then changes the vest from red to blue,
An Explorer now, she knows what is true.
Reverence and honesty are ways to be
an American Heritage Girl of integrity.
Badges, camping, service, and friends,
Explorers hope this time never ends.
As her faith in God begins to grow
Her candle light brightens to a glow.
Faith, Service, Family and Fun,
Her AHG journey is not yet done.

Now she learns the Pioneer ways,
A sash to wear for the rest of her days.
Perseverance, compassion and loyalty
These traits make a woman of integrity.
As a Pioneer begins to take the lead
Her light glows bright with every deed.
And now her confidence begins to soar
as she leads the girls more and more.
Faith, Service, Family and Fun,
Her AHG journey is not yet done.

A Patriot is given a red shirt to hold,
The time has come for her light to be bold.
Resourcefulness and responsibility
These traits make a woman of integrity.
The Patriot leads with God’s word as her guide,
The troop leaders now walk at her side.
Faith, Service, Family and Fun,
Her AHG journey is almost done.

 

Now you light the way for others to see.

The world looks to you, you are a woman of integrity.

Leadership, wisdom, strength and might,

We pray now that your light will always shine bright.

As you follow God’s call,

Remember to give Him your all.

Faith, service, family and fun,

Your AHG journey is now all done.
