The Work

By Montford C. Holley

The gavel sounds and all is still:
The Master speaks, proclaims his will:
Each one obeys, takes up his tools.
Inspects the plan, consults the rules:
With trowel and level, plumb and square,
Each stone is set exactly where
The plan provides, the drawing shows
And day by day, the Temple grows:
The porch is finished, pillars placed
The strands of net-work, interlaced
The chambers furnished, pavement laid,
The sacred vessels all displayed:
The walls are standing, straight and true
The roof is on, the labor through:
The Master speaks, The work is done:
The gavel sounds, God calls us home.

I purchased a Past Master's ring for my husband and it was well worth the wait. It is a quality piece of work and gorgeous, he was surprised and pleased.

I guessed on the size and it is a perfect fit as well. Thank you, we will be returning customers.
