Our Worshipful Brother George Washington
Masonry has many claims
Including presidential names,
And, foremost, when all's said and done
Would have to be George Washington.
He led our troops in many fights
He helped compose our 'Bill of Rights,
That all his people might be free
Enjoying life and liberty.
Americans still say today
We're lucky that we live this way,
For many, how surprised they'd be
To learn it sprang from Masonry.
For Washington, the Masons knew
Masonic principles were true,
And Masons know around this Earth
They came to be before his birth.
With other Masons, so conceived
He simply wrote what he believed,
Those thoughts and words that set us free
Are not unique in Masonry.
But not too many people know
The liberties they treasure so,
Were put into our Constitution
By Masons from the Revolution.
George Washington is praised by all
For answering his country's call,
For being president so wise,
For never telling any lies.
To each American, he's a part
Of what we treasure in our heart,
To love him not, would be like treason
Though each may have his own good reason.
But Masons o'er the years have cared
In knowing principles we've shared,
It's Washington we praise tonight
He truly shared Masonic Light.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
