In ancient times, when stone met sky,

And pyramids rose, where pharaohs lie,

The builders gathered, hands in grace,

To craft the future, stone by place.

From Egypt’s sands to Solomon’s walls,

Where secrets whispered through temple halls,

They carved their lore in symbols grand,

A legacy etched in the land.

A guild of skill, with craft so fine,

In every line, a hidden sign,

From Gothic spires to castle keep,

Their mystic wisdom ran so deep.

In England’s green and rolling hills,

Where ancient stones stand silent still,

A brotherhood in secret grew,

With codes and rites known but to few.

Through trials of fire, and times of strife,

They guarded truth, preserved their life,

With compass, square, and apron white,

They sought the path of inner light.

The Renaissance brought minds anew,

Da Vinci’s hand, a world to view,

Enlightenment, a dawn so bright,

Freemasonry embraced the light.

In lodges grand, with candle’s gleam,

They shared their dreams, a noble theme,

Equality, and liberty,

A quest for truth, for you and me.

From Anderson’s Constitutions old,

Their tenets and their rules unfold,

A charter for the noble craft,

A timeless oath in words so daft.

George Washington, a master true,

With Franklin, shared a vision new,

A nation born from Masons’ dream,

Where freedom flows like mountain stream.

In wars and peace, through night and day,

Their guiding light has shown the way,

From east to west, their lodges stand,

A brotherhood across the land.

With hands outstretched, they seek to bind,

The hearts of men, in purpose kind,

To build a world where all are free,

In truth and love, in harmony.

Their symbols speak of mysteries old,

In tales of wisdom, yet untold,

The arch, the keystone, pillars tall,

A universal call to all.

From Solomon’s time to modern day,

Freemasonry has paved the way,

A brotherhood, a light so clear,

Guiding souls through doubt and fear.

Their history, a tapestry,

Woven with threads of unity,

A legacy, for all to see,

The builders of eternity.

In every heart where justice reigns,

Where love of truth forever gains,

The Masons’ work is never done,

Their quest for light has just begun.

For in the stones and in the clay,

In every dawn, in every day,

The spirit of the Masons rise,

To greet the world with opened eyes.

So, let us honor, and let us praise,

The noble craft of bygone days,

For in their steps, we find our way,

The Freemasons, still guide our day.
