Song of St. John

How blest is the home
Where the Brotherhood come!
How charming the time and occasion!
The love that was born,
In the heart of St. John,
Now warms up the heart of the Mason.

It is you, Sir, and you,
Friendly Brothers and true,
No matter what may be your station, -
On the level our way,
We are equal to-day,
For I, Sirs, with you, am a Mason!

This love that was born
In the heart of St. John,
Is the bond of a charming connection
Through good, and through ill,
It abides with me still,
And makes me thank God I'm a Mason!

When in the Lodge met,
And the officers set,
'Tis of duty and pleasure a season
Ah! gladly is given
The Father in Heaven,
The praises devout of the Mason.

When labor is done,
And the Brotherhood gone,
Do you think that our secrets we blazon?
No, no! 'tis the joy
Of our mystic employ,
That we tell them to none but a Mason.

For 'tis this we do learn,
From our patron, St. John,
The pride of this charming occasion,
That the tongue that conceals,
And never reveals,
Is the very best thing for a Mason!

Then, Lady and Sir,
While we stoutly aver,
In our secrets we'll never work treason,
The rules we profess
Are the same that did grace
Our patron St. John, The Freemason.

And while to his name
We may boldly lay claim,
To his graces we'll cling till death's season,
And then to the bourne,
Where his spirit has gone,
We'll hie us with every good Mason.
