True Cornerstone

Rob Morris

What is the Mason's cornerstone?
Does the mysterious temple rest
On earthly ground from east to west
From north to south and this alone?

What is the Mason's cornerstone?
Is it to toil for fame and pelf,
To magnify our petty self,
And love our friends and this alone?

No, no the Mason's cornerstone
A deeper, stronger, nobler base,
Which time and foe cannot displace
Is Faith in God and this alone!

'Tis this which makes the mystic tie
Loving and true, divinely good,
A grand, united brotherhood,
Cemented 'neath the All-seeing Eye.

'Tis this which gives the sweetest tone
To Mason's melodies the gleam
To loving eyes the brightest gem
That sparkles in the Mason's crown.

'Tis this which makes the Mason's grip
A chain indissolubly strong
It banishes all fraud, and wrong,
And coldness from our fellowship.

Oh, cornerstone, divine, divine!
Oh, Faith in God! it buoys us up,
And gives to darkest hours a hope,
And makes the heart a holy shrine.

Brothers, be this your cornerstone
Build every wish and hope on this
Of present joy, of future bliss,
On earth, in Heaven and this alone!
