The Masonic Trowel

 I sought to know at the end of the day,
Did I do a good deed along the way,
To help another,
or did I say Something Really Worthwhile.
Did I give a smile as I passed folks by,
Or help to relieve some heart‑felt sigh,
Go out of my way and really try Something Really Worthwhile.
Did I open my heart and open my purse,
Or did I quote psalms,
religious verse,
To those who had lost‑ reimburse,
Something Really Worthwhile.
Were my acts through the day of stern rectitude,
Were they kindly and gentle or the acts of a prude,
Were they honest and upright,
and meant to include Something Really Worthwhile.
Did I send forth good thoughts or were they obscure,
Or thoughts that would the best things adjure,
Did I think as I ought and thus ensure Something Really Worthwhile,
Did I in my prayers,
pray for another,
Did I ask for myself and not even bother To plead with God to give my brother Something Really Worthwhile.
O then,
Dear Father,
in thought,
word and deed,
May I ever remember another's great need,
And throughout all my life to them concede SOMETHING REALLY WORTHWHILE.
