Philmont Hymn


Silver on the Sage

Star-lit skies above

Aspen covered hills

Country that I love

Philmont here’s to thee

Scouting paradise


Out in God’s country Tonight

Wind in whispering pines

Eagle soaring high

Purple mountains rise

Against an azure sky

Philmont here’s to thee

Scouting paradise


Out in God’s country

Tonight

 

Philmont Hymn, by John Westfall, scout age 15, while camping at Cimarroncito Aug 17, 1945.
