Rucking cans will not grow old
Look to my left or to my right
I’m never alone in the fight
Early morning I carry weight
A call to love and not to hate
F3 Nation represent
To these friendships we commit
AO Mastodon we ruck
Here before our God, awestruck
Out of darkness comes the dawn
Faithful lives we will lead on
Lift our M and 2.0s
Thank you God for giving those
Thanks also for this here PAX
May these friendships always last
Here we give our lives to God
As we travel with this squad
Out into our given day
God’s good glory on display
