The Loving Tie
The loving tie we feel,
No language can reveal
'Tis seen in the sheen of a fond Brother's eye.
It trembles on the ear
When melting with a tear,
A Brother bids us cease to sigh.
Behold how good and how pleasant
For Brothers in unity to dwell!
As Heaven's dew are shed
On Sion's sacred head,
The blessings of the Lord we feel.
'Twas at the sufferer's bed
Now moldering with the dead,
This Bond, ah, so fond, was discovered first to me!
I saw his dying eye,
Light up with speechless joy,
And I felt how fond that love must be.
I ever will proclaim
With gratitude the name
Of Him, the Divine, who has granted this to me!
That weary tho' I stray
O'er nature's rugged way,
I never, never, alone can be.
There's some I know will smile
And others may revile
'Tis so as we know with the evil heart alway
But if I can but prove
Through life a Mason's love,
I little care what man may say!
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
