Women’s Club Pledge
I pledge my loyalty to the Club Women
By doing better than ever before
By being prompt, honest, courteous
By living each day
Trying to accomplish something
Not merely to exist
Collect for Club Women
Keep us, O 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 grow calm, serene, gentle.
Teach us to put into action out better impulses;
Straight-forward and unafraid.
Grant that we may realize it is the little
Things that create big differences,
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, O Lord God, let us not forget to be kind.
