Fragrance of a Good Deed
On hallowed ground those walls are reared
That roof incloses in
A spot to Masonry endeared,
To Sion's Mount akin
Since Sion's Temple is bereft
And Judah mourns his God,
No holier site on earth is left,
Than this our feet have trod.
For here, inspired by truest faith,
Relief a Brother gave,
Upheld a wanderer unto death
And blessed him with a grave
Aye, with a grave whose portals closed
To that majestic song,
Which has to the fraternal host
Brought deathless hopes so long.
The Eye Divine approved the deed,
'Tis graven as with steel
And when the noble act we read
This fond desire we feel, —
That all our mystic work and word
Thus modeled well may be,
And so the Temple of our God
Rise fast and gloriously!
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
