What it Means to be a Brother?
My Brother, Masonry means more Than just to wear a pin, Or carrying a dues receipt So the Lodge will let you in. You wear an emblem on your coat And on your hand a ring, But if you’re not sincere at heart, This doesn’t mean a thing It’s just an outward sign to show The world that you belong, To this Fraternal Brotherhood That teaches right from wrong. What really counts lies buried deep Within the human breast, Masonic teachings brings it out And puts it to the test If you can do outside the Lodge The things you learn within, Be just and upright to yourself And to your fellow man. Console a brother when he’s sick, Or help him when in need Without a thought of reward For any act or deed. Conduct yourself in such a way The world without can see. None but the best can meet the test Laid down by Masonry. Respect and live up to your trust And be the best you can. The you can tell the World you are, A MASON AND A MAN.
