    My Brother, Masonry means much more
    Than the wearing of a pin
    Or carrying a paid-up dues receipt
    So the Lodge will let me in

    You may wear an emblem on your coat
    From a finger flash a ring
    But if you're not sincere at heart
    This doesn't mean a thing

    It's merely an outward sign to show
    The World that you belong
    To this great Fraternal Brotherhood
    That teaches right from wrong

    What really counts lies buried deep
    Within the human breast
    'Till Masonic teaching brings it out
    And puts it to the test

    If you practice out of the Lodge
    The things which you learn within
    Be just and upright to yourself
    And to your fellow men

    Console a Brother when he's sick
    And assist him when in need
    Without a thought of personal reward
    For any act or deed

    Walk the world in such a way
    That the world can see
    That only the best can meet the test
    Laid down by Masonry

    Be always faithful to your trust
    And do the best you can
    Then you can proudly tell the world
    You're a Mason and a Man
