Let us Honor George Washington

By Silas H. Shepherd

Let us honor a Brother who squared every deed
By the purest of motive his conscience decreed.
His claim to our gratitude surely was earned
By service to every great truth he had learned.
In youth as Apprentice, he studied the needs
Of life and of conduct. and all moral creeds.

He applied them in manhood to country and state
To policies powerful and ideals great.
He lived for the good of a people, a race
His memory cherishedno foe can we trace.
He conquered in war and in peace was devoid
Of the strife of party we seldom avoid.

In age he grew wise in the ways that bring peace
And from strife and conflict the people release.
Let us honor his virtues and fortitude rare!
Let us follow the leader and with him compare!
He has laid a design both perfect and true
It remains for all Masons to carry it through.
