    To meet upon the level
    Is an easy thing to say,
    But when it comes to practice,
    Do we do it every day?
    Do we meet him on the level,
    If the Brother chance to be
    Just a little out at elbow
    Or baggy at the knee?

    When we meet him in the workshop,
    Do we greet him with the grip
    That we do the noted statesman
    On a European trip?
    Do we meet him on the level
    And give him just the chance
    That we do the dashing fellow
    With the creases in his pants?

    If fortune does not smile on him
    In sunshine and repose,
    Do we meet him on the level
    In his second-handed clothes?
    Do we invite him to our church,
    And seat him in our pew,
    And warm our hearts by clasping hands
    As Brothers ought to do?

    Yes, we meet him on the level,
    On the broad Masonic plan,
    Whenever we know him to be
    A Mason and a man.
    We'll meet him on the level,
    And part upon the square,
    And then perhaps he'll vouch for us
    When we meet him over there.
