Ear of Corn

Rob Morris

Of the water fall 'tis born,
In the nodding fields of corn,
Blest type of Masons' love and plenty
And the hymn of our delight
Shall be this symbol bright,
Singing the type of love and plenty.

The emblem of plenty,
The rich, Golden Ear,
Gift of a Father of grace ever dear,
Oh, the hymn of our delight,
Shall be of this emblem bright,
Singing the type of love and plenty.

Of the bliss of earth it tells,
Every blessing in it dwells,
Sunshine is on its treasure golden
And the cooling drops of morn
Have bedewed the nodding Corn,
Ripe in the field of treasure golden.

In the nodding Ear of Corn,
Finds the spirit, weary, worn,
Hopes, hopes of better days in Heaven
When the harvest toil is done,
And the feasting is begun,
Joy, joy, the Sabbath day of Heaven!

Let the golden symbol be
Where the toiling Crafts may see,
Toiling, and never quite despairing
Of the water fall 'tis born,
In the nodding fields of Corn,
Meet for the soul in its despairing.

Commentary

The Masonic emblem of the Ear of Corn, though rarely commented upon by our writers, is, in fact, one of the most expressive of all the designs upon our Trestle Board. It is generic, embodying all those symbols that refer to refreshment, rest, holidays, and the slumbers of the grave. In every Lodge the Ear of Corn should constitute one of those conspicuous objects which, like the letter G, by attracting the eye, instruct the mind. Its place is over the station of the Junior Warden.
