Acrostic - George Washington

Author Unknown

G reat patron of our noble art divine,
E xtend thy all enliv'ning orient ray,
O n Masonry with ardent lustre shine,
R efulgent shineand usher in new day
G reat architect, bright morning star of fame,
E ach Mason glories in his patrons name.

W hat's great and good, and beautiful to see,
A re all compriz'd, and to be found in thee
S tatesman, hero, patriot, brother dear,
H umane, benevolent, just and sincere
I ntrepid soldier, guardian of our land,
N e'er let us fall beneath oppressor's hand,
G ently lead and guide us on to fame,
T hat we may stand recorded with thy name
O n Mason's hearts thy name shall stand secure,
N or be forgot while Masonry endures.
