The Nine O'Clock Toast

Peter J. Hobbs

If at nine o'clock you listen when around the festive board

If you listen very carefully with your hearts tuned in accord

You'll hear when in the west and south you're charged in fullest measure

Some distant voices calling Brother, may I have the pleasures



For at nine o'clock we greet you - no matter where we stand

We may be merely out of town, or in some far off land

With melting hearts and brimful eyes we'll steal a moment's leisure

To call our distant greeting Brother may I have the pleasure?



For we are bound together by a great eternal link

To drink from that Masonic cup from which we all may drink

Accept, Masonic Brethren, whose fellowship we treasure

That old Masonic challenge Brother, may I have the pleasures

Commentary

Added by

W.Bro. Bill Shorto



Brethren, shall we pause a while, and be of one accord

to note those who are missing from this, our festive board?

Shall we think of absent brethren, and take this drought of wine,

and hope that they do likewise, at the very stroke of nine?
