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 ...

It isn't such an easy thing To live a Christian life,
To do the things one ought to do,
And always stand for right.
The other fellow's striving too,
For things he thinks are true,
But he's got different thoughts Upon the things that we must do.
One says you're not a Christian If you haven't been submerged,
You will never get to heaven,
You have gone right off the course.
if you don't believe This great predestination,
You are headed straight for Brimstone pit,
eternal condemnation.
Another says,
you must confess To priests and dignitaries,
Believe in creeds and dogmas,
And also the Virgin Mary.
Another thinks to wash the feet Is the only great solution To save the soul from all its sins And give you absolution.
Now I have thought that all these things Are just about the limit,
You must think this and live your life,
No matter how you live it.
You can swear and drink and gamble too,
But come to church on Sunday,
Believe in what I tell you to,
And to heaven you’ll get some day.
I remember once I read a book About a man named Jesus,
He didn't seem to fume and fret About the creeds and dogmas.
He told us to be kind and good,
To help along a brother,
To give a break and never take Advantage of another.
This seems to me to be the thing That God's expecting from us,
If we would hope in life to come To gain His blessed promise.
So let's forget about the things That cause our separation,
Just live like Christ,
do God's will,
And seek new Consecration.
