    Is it Masonry
    To dare to take God's name in vain,
    Or be careful of our speech;
    From evil thoughts and words refrain,
    And practice what we preach?

    Is it Masonry
    To boast of your fine jewels,
    Or purify your heart;
    To be a man and Mason
    And act a Mason's part?

    Is it Masonry
    To fail to help your brothers,
    Or your obligations fill?
    To leave it for the others,
    Or mean and say "I will"?
