Go on Thy Bright Career
Go on thy bright career, brave, faithful heart,
Prayers of the faithful every step attending
Go spread the triumphs of the Mystic Art,
Wherever knee to Deity is bending
Raise up the landmarks, long in rubbish hidden
Rear high the Altar on Moriah's brow
Denounce all teachings by our rites forbidden,
And Light, More Light, on yearning hearts bestow.
Crush all things that obstruct the cause of truth
How grand, how noble is the sacrifice!
How worthy of the brightest dreams of youth,
To build a House like that within the skies!
Oh, when we lay thee, mourned-for, 'neath the sod,
And cast the green and fragrant bough of faith,
How cheerful can we give thee to thy God
Whose works defy the utmost power of death!
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
