Duties of the Craft
Come, and let us seek the straying,
Lead him to the Shepherd back
Come, the traveler's feet betraying,
Guide him from the dangerous track
Come, a solemn voice reminds us -
Come, a mystic fetter binds us -
Masons, here your duties lie,
Hark, the poor and needy cry!
Come and help the worthy poor,
Starving for the needed bread
From your well replenished store
Let your fellow-man be fed!
Bounties God to you supplieth,
To the poor He oft denieth.
Come where sorrow has her dwelling,
Comfort bring to souls distressed
To the friendless mourner telling
Of the Rock that offers rest
What would life he but for Heaven?
Come, to us the Word is given.
Band of Brothers, every nation
Hails your bright and Orient light!
Fervent, zealous, free, your station
Calls for deeds of noblest might!
Seek - the world is full of sorrow, -
Act - your life will end to-morrow.
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
