WHAT IS A MASON?

WHAT IS A MASON

 

A Mason is a man who possesses Faith in God. As a man of Faith, he uses tools of moral and ethical trusted to serve mankind.


A Mason binds himself to like-minded men in a Brotherhood that transcends all Religious, Ethical, Social, Cultural and Educational differences.


In Fellowship with his Brothers, a Mason finds ways in which to serve his God, his family, his fellow man and his country.


A Mason is dedicated. He recognizes his responsibility for Justice, Truth, Charity, Enlightenment, Freedom, Liberty, Honesty and Integrity in all aspects of human endeavor.


A Mason is such a Man!

THE MODEL MASON

There's a fine old Mason in the land, he's genial, wise and true,

His list of brothers comprehends, dear brothers, me and you;

So warm his heart the snow blast fails to chill his generous blood,

And his hand is like a giant's when outstretched to man or GOD; 

Reproach nor blame, nor any shame, has checked his course or dimmed his fame

All honor to his name!

This fine old Mason is but one of a large family:

In every lodge you'll find his kin, you'll find them two or three;

You'll know them when you see them, for they have their father's face,

A generous knack of speaking truth and doing good always;

Reproach nor blame, nor any shame, has checked their course or dimmed their fame -

Freemason is their name!

Ah, many an orphan smiles upon the kindred as they pass;

And many a widow's prayers confess the sympathizing grace;

The FATHER of this Brotherhood himself is joyed to see

Their works -they're numbered all in Heaven, those deeds of charity!

Reproach nor blame, nor any shame, there check their course or dim their fame -

All honor to their name!
