Ode for Cornerstone Planting


When the kindled wrath
Of offended Heaven
Gave, in smoldering smoke and flame,
The wealth that He had given
Though that day, in black dismay,
Saw our city melt away,
Yet we hoped, 'twas not in vain,
God would smile on us again.

Then deeply lay the stone
Plant it firm and true
So shall distant ages own
The work the Masons do.

In its deep recess,
Set with mystic care,
Hark, our faithful witnesses,
The Level, Plumb, and Square!
Nations sink beneath the curse
As they deviate from us
In unerring truth may yours
Last while circling time endures!

Then strongly lay the stone
Plant it firm and true
So shall distant ages own
The work the Masons do.

Hear our prayer, O God,
Thou, the Nation's trust!
And may these walls majestic rise
When we are in the dust!
Humbly - we are but as one
Hopeful - are we not Thine own?
Midst this mighty gathering
To Thy name we rise and sing,

And grandly lay the stone
Plant it firm and true
So shall distant ages own
The work the Masons do.
