The oath is something that the Green Lantern says every time that he charges up his power ring, and is usually different for each and every Green Lantern character in the comic book universe. One of the most popular oaths is as follows:
“In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil’s might, Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!“
This is the one that the majority of us GL fans are familiar with. There are also a few others that are extremely well known, but this is the one that most diehard fans can recite by heart. This oath was revised from the original one that appeared in the earlier comic books and continues to live on as one of the most famous quotes in all of DC Comics!

The oath is something that each Green Lantern says to himself and is a sort of a daily affirmation that lets him know that he is strong and courageous enough to go out and fight the good fight! The oath is the inner fire that brings forth the power to let justice prevail, not just over Earth but across countless galaxies throughout the universe. The legend of the Green Lantern is widely known all across the world and will always be one of the most influential superheroes of all time.
