The Goodly Heritage
O, what a goodly heritage
The Lord to us has given!
How blest the brotherhood that pledge
Their Mason vows to Heaven!
We sing the mystic chain that binds
These western realms in one
Such loving hearts, such liberal minds,
No other land has known.
Ten thousand lights in Mason halls
Are gleaming on our eyes
Ten thousand emblems on the walls
Tell whence the gleaming is
And when the portals ope, to pass
The humble seeker in,
The voice of prayer pervades the place,
And proves the light Divine!
On every hill our Brothers lie,
And green sprigs deck the knoll
Their fall brought sorrow to the eye,
But triumph to the soul.
Our orphans sing in many a home,
Our widows' hearts are glad,
And Mason light dispels the gloom
And comfort finds the sad.
Thus link in link, from shore to shore,
The mystic chain is wound
Oh, blended thus forevermore,
Be Mason spirit found!
And while the Heavens, on pillars sure,
Of Strength and Wisdom stand,
May Brotherhood like ours endure,
Where Strength and Wisdom blend!
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
