Back to Masonic Songs
The Scotch Rite
Be ours to-night to sing,
Be ours to-night to laugh,
And in these cups, no drunken bowls,
The loving toast to quaff
We consecrate this odorous wine
And drink to Love and Auld Lang Syne.
Now raise the generous flood,
And drink to those who've gone
Beyond the grave, beyond the sky,
They seem to beckon on
With tears of friendship we attest,
And drink the Memory of the Blest.
Now drink to sober age,
To men in life's decline
To eyes bedimmed and wrinkled front,
The oldest, purest wine.
O brethren, give the loving toast
To Age and Worth and honest Frost.
Now drink the fond farewell, -
Now drink the come again
But not in song, and not in speech,
We make this last refrain -
With vision raised to God above
In silence drink - Freemasons' love!
Remember, if you don't see the Ashlar "A", it's not authentic.
