The Tools of a mason are made for use. If used with caution,
there'll be no abuse,
In all things be zealous,
exerting great care,
That our inner temple be wondrously fair.

  With gavel and chisel the rough stones to hew. That when it is finished,
exposed to the view,
'Twill be an example the worthy to share,
If proved by the level,
the plumb line and square.

The ~aP:e wil'

o o L measure the extent of our work,
With thought of completion,
and never to shirk,
To labor in gladness,
our vigilance to keep,
In prayer and refreshment,
labor and sleep.

The Square and the plumb line,
the level so true,
Adjusting all angles,
all uprights. too,
Thus we in our conduct,
their straightness compare,
Our thoughts,
words and actions must be on the Square.

The Skerrit Compasses and Pencil,
these three,
Are guiding our conduct for all men to see,
Each one should obey God's instructions divine,
If we would ascend to the Grand Lodge sublime.
