For the good of the craft...
Back to Masonic Songs
How the souls of friends departed
Brood around this joyful scene!
Tender, brave and faithful-hearted,
They have left their memories green.
Could we view them,
Smiles upon each face were seen.
As they scan our gladsome meeting,
It recalls a thousand joys
As they list our cheerful greeting,
'Tis to them a glorious voice
'Tis the echo
Of a hundred years of joys!
One by one those loved ones perished,
But they left the chain still wound
Every virtue that they cherished
Here is found as here they found
Thus in Heaven
Blessed souls with ours are bound.
Thus shall we, tho' long departed,
When a hundred years are sped,
Join the brave and faithful-hearted,
Who around this Lodge shall tread
And our memories
Shall be cherished here, though dead.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
