My Brother

I sought my soul,  But my soul I could not see.

I sought my God,  But God eluded me.

I sought my Brother, And I found all three.

What it Means to be a Brother

My Brother, Masonry means more Than just to wear a pin,

Or carrying a dues receipt So the Lodge will let you in.

You wear an emblem on your coat And on your hand a ring,

But if you’re not sincere at heart, This doesn’t mean a thing

It’s just an outward sign to show The world that you belong,

To this Fraternal Brotherhood That teaches right from wrong.

What really counts lies buried deep Within the human breast,

Masonic teachings brings it out And puts it to the test

If you can do outside the Lodge The things you learn within,

Be just and upright to yourself And to your fellow man.

Console a brother when he’s sick, Or help him when in need

Without a thought of reward For any act or deed.

Conduct yourself in such a way The world without can see.

None but the best can meet the test Laid down by Masonry.

Respect and live up to your trust And be the best you can.

The you can tell the World you are, A MASON AND A MAN.

In the home                               it is kindness

In business                                it is honesty

In society                                   it is courtesy

In work                                      it is fairness

Toward the Unfortunate         it is pity

Toward the Fortunate             it is congratulation

Toward the Weak                     it is help

Toward the Strong                   it is trust

Toward the Penitent                it is forgiveness

Toward the Wicked                  it is resistance

Toward God                              it is reverence and love
