What Makes A Man A Mason?

Poem by George M. Free

 

What makes a man a Mason, O brother of mine?
It isnít the due guard, nor is it the sign,
It isnít the jewel which hangs on your breast
It isnít the apron in which you are dressed

It isnít the step, nor the token, nor the grip,
Nor lectures that fluently flow from the lip,
Nor yet the possession of that mystic word
On five points of fellowship duly conferred.

Though these are essential, desirable, fine,
They donít make a Mason, O brother of mine.
That you to your sworn obligation are true
'Tis that, brother mine, makes a Mason of you.

Secure in your heart you must safeguard and trust,
With lodge and with brother be honest and just,
Assist the deserving who cry in their need,
Be chaste in your thought, in your word and your deed.

Support he who falters, with hope banish fear,
And whisper advice in an erring oneís ear.
Then will the Great Lights on your path brightly shine,
And youíll be a Mason, O brother of mine.

Your use of lifeís hours by the gauge you must try,
The gavel of vices with courage apply;
Your walk must be upright, as shown by the plumb,
On the level, to bourn whence no travelers come,

The Book of your faith be the rule and the guide,
The compass your passions shut safely inside;
The stone which the Architect placed in your care
Must pass the strict test of His unerring square.

And then you will meet
with approval divine,
And youíll be a Mason,
O brother of mine.
