Silas H. Shepherd
Do you try to conquer error,
And to live the life ordained?
Do you banish selfish wishes,
As in higher spheres attained?
Do you try to practice virtue
For its own dear sake alone,
And not set the double standard
But judge others by your own?
Do you try to make life brighter
By your sunny smiles and cheers,
And develop joy and gladness
As you grow in Light and years?
Do you square your every action
By the square the Master used
And build a noble mansion
In this body you′ve abused?
If you live a life of effort
The result can never fail
To develop power and glory
Ere you end this earthly trail.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
