Lodge Welcome to Ladies

By Rob Morris

It is in our hearts, dear sisters,
While the Mason's chain is bright,
To give our warmest welcome
To the best beloved, tonight
To the wife, so fondly cherished,
To the daughter, sister, true,
To the faithful, tenderhearted
Shall I say the word? to you.

We acknowledge countless blessings
From the Bounteous Hand above
Our bond was first cemented
By Divine assent and love
We are grateful, truly grateful,
For all gifts He doth bestow,
But our warmest thanks are given
Shall I say the word? for you.

The woes of life are many,
Thronging dark on every side,
In tears, and sighs, and broken hearts,
And sorrows far and wide
The Mason's hand is generous,
But most freely we bestow,
When the appeal is made us
Shall I say the word? by you.

Our brotherhood is countless,
From the East unto the West
In every land, and clime, and tongue,
They range among the best
And every man a hundred miles
On frosty sod will go,
To give you help, or win a smile
Shall I say the word? from you.

Then hail! Adoptive Masonry,
That brings us here together
May manly arms 'round lovely forms
Protect from stormy weather
And when, adown the hill of life,
Our tottering feet shall go,
May our weary steps be comforted
Shall I say the word? by you.
