A Freemason's Prayer

By J. W. Horsley

Almighty Architect! whose mind
Hath planned all things that be,
Whose thought is law, whose law is Love,
Whose love Fertility.
Help us to reverence Thy mind,
And see Thy Temple in mankind.

Let there be lightThy primal voice
We echo, nor in vain
The hidden mysteries explore
That all Thy works contain,
Yet pray for humbleness and awe
In tracing Thine enfolding law.

Let there be life, it follows on
For light smiles not on death,
And light is life and life is light
When man remembereth
Thy name and will, and thinks it joy
To labor if in Thine employ.

Let there be love, for Thou art love.
Ah! Father, none can view
With filial love Thy Fatherhood
But love his brother too.
If charity our heart has filled,
Cementing stone to stone we build.

Wisdom, and Strength, and Beauty form
The pillars of Thy throne
Each in its perfect self belongs
To Thee, to Thee alone
Yet may they gleam before our eyes
To make us strong, and clean, and wise.

By Faith establish well our ways,
Bid Hope expand our view
And crown Thy gifts with golden Love,
Which maketh all things new.
Then shall our light before men shine
Because they mark that we are Thine.

They sent me a email with tracking number, the gloves came one day ahead of scheduled delivery. And they don't sell IFAMM/ CLANDESTINE products. I highly recommend them.” Brother Walter Zelaya, Middle Island, NY
