From The Virginia Masonic Journal, Richmond, Va
A Mason’s hand is a hand that helps, That
lifts the fallen one ‘
That comes, in need, with a kindly deed To him
whose strength is gone.
A Mason’s heart is a heart that loves The best that
is good and true;
He stands the friend, his best to lend, Under his
A Mason’s eye is an eye that smiles And his a
He spreads the light, dispels the night And makes
the world rejoice.
Over the earth in stranger lands,
Where distant peoples dwell,
The eye, the grip, the life, the lip, Of love

From Square & Compass, Denver, Colo.,
Hark ye, Masons, men of love,
Men of faith and men of fame!
Listen to the muffled cries
Of men in bondage, bound in shame!
Oh, what ignorance rules supreme!
Oh, what darkness hides the Light!
Oppose and fight all, things unclean
You are champions of the Right!
God in all His glory rules,
Watching over us with care;
He sends us wisdom, love and truth
With our fellow men to share.
Teach men how to see the Light
Not by word of mouth or pen,
But by deeds so kind and bright
Illuminate life’s path. Amen.
