White-aproned Brothers

Rob Morris

Come, cease from your labors,
Ye white-aproned neighbors,
And answer my words
Tells us who are ye?

We are friends of humanity,
Hating profanity,
Spurning all vanity,
Children Of Peace.
Men who can feel
All our own need of kindness,
And bless the Great God,
Who hath lightened our blindness.

Tell us, what do ye?

By precept, example,
We're building a temple,
Fair, lofty and ample,
For Him whom we serve
Following the plans
That our Master doth give us,
And amply repaid
When His servants receive us.

And what do you work with?

The Gauge and the Gavel,
The Plumb, Square, and Level,
And then as we travel,
The Trowel we hold
Skillfully these,
At first we're inducted
Obediently these,
In the way we're instructed.

Your timbers, what are they?

The blocks that we quarry,
And timbers so heavy,
Our hands shape and carry,
Those ashlars are Men
Rough ashlars they are
But hewed, marked and garnished,
By precepts divine,
Our task will be finished.

Your resting, when is it?

We look for no leisure,
We sigh for no pleasure,
We covet no treasure,
Till Saturday Night.
Wages and joys,
And a rest without breaking,
Wait for us then,
In the home that we're seeking.

Commentary

And he said unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes, and whence came they? I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said unto me, These are they which came out of tribulation, and have washed their robes, and have made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
