In the East
James F. Sullivan
Far out beyond those misty clouds,
that veil the heavenly blue,
the Master sits within the East,
and checks on what you do.
So, as your daily tasks you do,
prosaic though they be,
the rule of plumb and square observe
for all the world to see.
For when at last your day must end,
your tools you lay away,
'twill be how well your work was done
on which he'll base your pay.
For when you rap upon that door,
and seek to enter in,
'tis only He can vouch for you,
and free you from your sin.
No ritual learned can earn that place,
o trappings, rich and rare,
'tis heart and mind and love of man
that grants you welcome there!
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
