The Greatest of These
The Word of God, the rule of faith to Masons true and free,
Sublimely says, The greatest grace in man is Charity,
To feel the sympathetic glow for souls in sorrow driven
And lend relief, — 'tis this that brings the Mason nearest Heaven.
This broad-spread land, the Empire State, foremost in every art,
Hath lately shown in Charity the largest Mason heart
A Brother from a distant land came empty to their door,
And lo, the generous Brotherhood threw open wide their store.
All honor, praise, respect to them, the noblest in the land,
And honor their Grand Master, right worthy of command
And honor over all, to Him, the Sovereign King of Heaven,
Forever blest, who hearts to feel and hands to give, hath given.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
By Brothers, For Brothers & always For the good of the craft...
