That faith in GOD gives meaning and purpose to human life;
That the brotherhood of man transcend the sovereignty of nations;
That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
That government should be of laws rather than of men;
That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality;
And that service to humanity is the best work of life.
We reaffirm our conviction that faith in GOD gives meaning
and purpose to human life,
May the Lord guide us in all our undertakings.
We’re the Jaycees, the jolly Jaycees
We’re the hope and life of our land
When the job’s hard and things have got to run
Let us show you how the work has to be done
For we’re the Jaycees we don’t leave things half done
We stick together to a man we want things right in our community
The aim of Jaycee fraternity.
To be a man of good faith and principles;
To sustain the spirit of youth in my heart;
To be generous in my feelings and in my deeds;
To be a good friend, companion and brother to all;
To consecrate myself loyally and uprightly at all times;
To strive for a sound mind and a sound body;
To shun hatred, rancor and selfishness;
To forgive and forget the harm others may have caused me;
And, if all men are my brothers, to honor all children as my
Children and the aged as I would my parents.
