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 ...

(The names may be changed to suit the Lodge)
A past Masters' night is just really fine,
It brings out the men who have gone through the line,
To see them all there in the officers' chairs,
Just gladdens the heart and we have no fears That the work will be shoddy or half memorized,
They've wrought in the quarries and all realize That work must tee perfect and stones set fair,
They've handled the Plumbline,
the level and square.
There's Stewart as Master,
Past D.D.G.M.,
A really fine mason and prince among men,
And W.C. Gauld,
who studies the law,
He can take over for he knows the score,
There's Jerrett,
and Newton,
With zeal for freemasonry they're all inspired,
Get them together,
the work goes right on,
Right well they do it without pro and con.
And Architect Horwood,
he draws the line,
With pencil delineates the building so fine,
And Boydell,
uses no force,
Past Grand Lodge Officer,
takes a straight course. There' s Hogle and Coombs,
Dunham and Barrs,
Like the four cardinal virtues nothing then mars,
Their lustre,
these Masons are just,
firm and true,
An example to all in whatever they do.
Now Allman,
Elvidge and Kyte,
If they had no part,
it wouldn't be right,
They've worn their aprons through all the years,
Their garments unspotted throughout toil and cares;
And Worshipful Brothers,
Past Masters five,
The Five Points of fellowship,
really alive,
In Wilson and Clement,
Lucas and Cooke,
And Clarke '62,
now just take a look,
They stand foot to foot,
firm and erect,
Hand to hand clasped there is no defect,
Knee to knee bending their prayers shall rise,
Breast to breast sending their thoughts to the skies Thus they are bound by one great chain Of love and affection,
never to wane,
And now,
my brethren,
a Toast I now call,
To our Past Masters,
God bless them all.
