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 ...

 Thanksgiving time is here once more,
Iet's get together and tally the score,
No bombs fell on our homes this year,
No earthquakes or floods to give us a scare.
Our tongues were not swollen because of thirst,
Our hearts were not broken or like to burst,
No distended bellies with hunger or cramp,
Our feet were not aching because we must tramp.
No plague or pestilence to spoil our days,
To wipe out our neighbors in devious ways,
No rattle of gun‑fire; no cannon roar; No cruel henchmen to break down the door.
No one to bar or seal up the Church,
To enter our homes and wantonly search,
None to despoil the ones whom we love,
Thanks be to God in Heaven above.
We all are well‑cared for,
all are well‑fed,
Warm dwellings to live in,
a comfortable teed,
Our daily toil brings an adequate cheque,
The doctor and nurse give a routine check.
There are many today,
outside our land,
Who are seeking and needing a helping hand,
But we in this country are sitting just right,
Just take a look 'round and see the plight,
The chaos,
the hardship,
the dread and fear,
The poverty,
the undried tear,
While we have everything of the best,
With this world's goods we're truly blest.
Thanksgiving time is here once more,
Did you sit right down and tally the score? If you did,
like goal Masons you’ll start from here And practice your teachings without let or fear,
The distinguishing marks of a Mason,
you know,
Is to give of his best in a charitable flow; For God in all His benignity Has given so much to you and to me,
Now give 'till it hurts,
then start to pray,
With Real,
True Sincerity,
