The Masonic Trowel

... to spread the cement of brotherly love and affection, that cement which unites us into one sacred band or society of brothers, among whom no contention should ever exist, but that noble emulation of who can best work or best agree ...

 Be still,

my heart,

be tranquil and in your travail pause,

Look deep within yourself and perhaps you'll find the cause;


in infinite wisdom,

within the heart of man

Has placed the understanding and the meaning of His plan;

Be still,

and stand in peace and calm and wait upon the Lord,

And in your peaceful calmness reflect upon His word;

There find th' eternal import and the oneness with his light,

And let your soul rest tranquil in His radiance,

ever bright;

'Twill bring to you the meaning and the reason of your being,

With joy and consecration you will find the clearer seeing,

You'll know that God,

who made you,

gave you the light divine,

And the knowledge and the wisdom to right and wrong define,

Gave to your soul true beauty and to your heart a hope,

That in His strength and power,

you need not blindly grope,

The Laws of God,


He to our hearts made known,

For thus it was,

and thus it is,

Man reaps what he has sown.
Some folks delight in cookies,

In pies and all things sweet,

While others like the savories,
potatoes and meat.
Some go in for sloppy foods,
Porridge and soup from cheeps‑head,
But for flavor and enjoyment,
Give me some homemade bread.
The baker' s bread is good,
I know,
And tasty,
there' s no doubt,
But his baking is a business
For with him the money counts.
But when a mother bakes it
For her own,
I think you know,
She mixes love and tenderness
In with her yeast and dough.
And when the bread is risen,
Baked a beautiful brown,
There isn't a baker can compare,
In village,
in city or town.
So for something that's delicious,
And nourishing,
as I've said,
Give me a chunk of butter and
A loaf of homemade bread.
