Odd Fellow Valediction
I am an Odd Fellow.
I believe in The Fatherhood of God, and The Brotherhood of Man;
I Believe in Friendship, Love,
and Truth as basic guides to the ultimate destiny
of all mankind.
I believe my home, my church or temple, my lodge and my community
deserve my best work, my modest pride, my earnest faith, and my
deepest loyalty, as I perform my duty "to visit the sick,
relieve the distressed, bury the dead and educate the orphan" and
as I work with others to build a better world, because, in spirit
and in truth, I am and must always be grateful to my Creator, faithful
to my country and fraternal to my fellow‑man.
I am an Odd Fellow
